The goal remains the same: pharmaceutical companies wants to influence product adoption, improve sales volume and increase product revenue. Key Account Management (KAM) is now the tool of choice, but too many companies are still engaging with it half heartedly. What can be done and what are the critical issues to address when building a KAM team?

KAM has been around for over 10 years, yet many companies have failed, and some continue to do so, in establishing a full and effective KAM model. Despite the early success of KAM, and the promise it held to be a game changer for customer engagement, companies have often been slow - through fear or inexperience - to embrace all that KAM has to offer. Is this surprising? Cultural change and restructure have long been recognized as a challenge for the pharmaceutical industry. The traditional 'command and control', centralized, head office-driven model is ingrained and comfortable: no wonder some are wary of going all the way with KAM.

To cling on to traditional sales methods is to deny market reality. Sales representatives, supported by broadcast messaging, get precious little face time with prescribers, and, as a point of market access, this route continues to diminish. Most importantly, traditional sales methods do not engage, understand or work with customers - and this is where the sales are.

What's your value proposition?

The heart of a good KAM practice is presenting to prescribers and influencers what the clinical and economic value is of choosing your product. You don't sell a product; you sell a solution, and a solution which is tailored to meeting their priorities. Clearly such a solution cannot be created centrally and generically applied. To create such a value proposition, the key account manager must engage with a range of stakeholders and decision makers, fully understand what drives them and their decisions and then use this information to position the product for best advantage. This is a long way from old high call rate product detail approach, and requires a unique set of flexible and entrepreneurial skills.

The essentials of building a KAM team

The number of team restructures within Pharma sales and marketing is testimony to the many attempts to get KAM right. Some times KAM practice is only partially introduced; sometimes KAM is a token effort with the current rep sales force being rebranded. Sometimes the necessary cultural and operation change is only skin deep or the KAM initiative has not been given enough time to bed in.

KAM, essentially, is about people. People, who can understand patterns within a healthcare service and engage with the right stakeholders in a timely way, people who can develop commercial strategies for a network of influencers and identify opportunities and provide value-based solutions to customers to meet their needs.

This report breaks down KAM requirements and lets you build the team you need.
