GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR “ADAPT” SELLING SKILLS VIDEO ROLE-PLAY I ASSIGNMENT DUE Monday October 23, 2006

Introduction The “ADAPT” role-play assignment is designed to simulate the first sales call that a salesperson might make on a new prospective buyer. As such, this experiential assignment assumes that the salesperson has gathered initial, general information on the prospect and is making a sales call for the dual purposes of: 1. 2. 3. 4. Initiating a relationship, Discovering the prospect’s needs, Earning and gaining interim commitment, Using confirmed benefits to win a subsequent appointment for presentation of a unique solution, and, 5. Developing a level of understanding that will enable the salesperson to address these needs with a solution in a subsequent sales call. It should be emphasized that the purpose of this initial sales call is NOT selling a product or even presenting a solution – but rather needs discovery and assessment. As such, the emphasis is on demonstrating the student salesperson’s mastery of and ability to use the ADAPT method of questioning. Assignment Requirements Each student will need to find a Mini DV camera and a tripod (Mini DV is the latest Tape format and is digital. It is not Mini DVD) and suitable location to video-tape his or her individual selling role-play (e.g., the team rooms in Holman, an unused office where you work, a meeting room, etc.). If for any reason you are unable to obtain a camera, see me immediately. We have cameras and tripods that you can borrow – you supply the tape. You should prepare in advance and rehearse your role-play so that extensive notes are not necessary. Extensive notes and prepared scripts may not be used during the role play. Sales-aides, such as a brochure, are permissible and are recommended. These sales aids should cover the features-advantagesbenefits of your product. Reading from notes other than sales aids will result in a deduction of up to 10 percent of your project score. You may use already prepared sales aids from your company or prepare your own if none are available (e.g., using your FAB matrix in your Sales Call Planning/FAB report). Assignment Specifics For this role-play, students work with their selling partner and take on the role of the salesperson and buyer as depicted in the selling situation developed and detailed in the team’s FAB/Sales Call Planning Report. This assignment accounts for 100 points of your overall course grade. Each member of a selling team will play the roles of (a) salesperson and (b) buyer. That is, Team Member A will role-play the part of a salesperson with Team Member B playing the role of the buyer. Then, using the same videotape, the team members switch roles with Team Member B playing the role of salesperson and Team Member A acting as the buyer. Role-plays will be conducted outside of regular class time and video taped in a simulated office setting.

etc. Monitor your time – being too short or too long will result in a lower evaluation.. use a tripod when recording. keep going – just like the real thing. As a final step. Each student will turn in one tape with their presentation on the tape. You will not have time to stop and start over. 4. 3. each student-salesperson must review and evaluate their own role-play using the attached Self-Assessment Form (this form is available on the web site and must be typed – please download your own electronic copy). Advance preparation is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to assure the proper use and mixing of question types for each of the ADAPT stages. stops/starts. 2. Role-plays will be evaluated based on how well a student uses the skills and techniques learned in class. the completed videotape is to be turned in for evaluation. including the student’s mastery of using interpersonal communication skills (content and context). Similarly. from “walk-in” to “walk-out” each individual salesperson’s presentation should run 13 to 15 minutes in length. making an approach to the prospect initiating the relationship effectively conducting needs discovery using the ADAPT question sequence closing” the call by winning the right to schedule and make a subsequent call in order to present a proposed solution relevant to the discovered needs. Reminders  Dress and act professionally (both seller and buyer)  Practice – Practice – Practice  If possible. Students should be sure to put their name on the tape & rewind tape to the beginning of the role-play. Along with your personal critique of your performance. do not try to edit your tape or to stop the tape and redo a segment.• Each student’s (a) role-play videotape and (b) self-critique is due to be turned in at the start of class on Monday October 23. Students should comment on what was done well and what could be improved. Also. Assume this is an actual sales call – once you begin. All together. The tape should run through without edits.  Prepare a 13 to 15 minute role-play  Refer to the attached Evaluation Form to double-check that nothing has been forgotten  Practice – Practice – Practice  Evaluate your role-play  Submit your typed self-assessment and finished video tape by the deadline  Practice – Practice – Practice . practicing ahead of time with your buyer is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.
