Conducting a win/loss analysis is about spending time at the end of a sales cycle to extract some feedback from the customer you’ve interacted with. It can help you learn what went well and where you can improve. It’s immensely valuable. You have to make numerous assumptions in the sales cycle. 

This allows you to park the assumptions and get honest feedback from your customer and then take action based on that information. Conducting a win/loss analysis is one of the best ways to improve your sales. Learn more from Cian McLoughlin in this episode of Sales Reinvented!
