WOULDN’T IT BE GREAT…
if buyers and sellers created more value together based on trust?
The result: for vendors an increased win rate, higher margins and better retention. For customers: far greater outcomes tapping into the full range of their suppliers’ capabilities.
Taken together this builds a powerful ecosystem of value with bigger ambitions about what can be achieved. Openness, honesty and transparency replace transactional behaviours that lead to conflicting interests and confrontation.
Mutual Value’s purpose is to support its clients in the transition to this way of engaging suppliers, customers and partners. The key is to focus on trust-based relationships, and we have consultancy, training, coaching and a toolkit to help our clients move towards this new, much more ambitious engagement model.
HOW MUTUAL VALUE CAN MAKE ECOSYSTEMS WORK
Ecosystem thinking is taking root in business, driven by the ability of technology to connect customers, suppliers, partners and other bodies in a way that allows co-creation of solutions, new interdependencies and – if done well – more rapid innovation.
However, as with so many technology-driven trends, success depends on the people who use it and this is where things can go wrong.
IT TAKES COURAGE TO WIN-WIN
HOW TO CO-CREATE A GREAT COMMERCIAL RELATIONSHIP
That’s a key question in most commercial relationships. And this isn’t just about when things go wrong. Sometimes it’s when things just didn’t go as they were meant to – and the fundamental issue was that the focus was on the transaction, not the relationship.
That’s why we’ve developed the Mutual Value Relationship Agreement.
