Adopting process mapping in sales and marketing

Mind mapping in sales and marketingProcess mapping is a well-known technique, however, this technique hasn't been widely adopted by sales and marketing departments.
Here you can find some advices on doing this.

Michael J. Webb, President of Sales Performance Consultants wrote:
Leaders in both large and small sales organizations often make mistakes that undermine the potential of process mapping. A common result, for example, is that salespeople ignore the process and operate outside the system
Webb's four common mistakes that hinder success:
- Map all the details, losing track of the big picture.
- Focus on the seller, instead of the customer.
- Map the process without showing how the results will be measured.
- Buy somebody else's "ideal" sales process.

Webb's principles That Yield Powerful Results:
- Keep your goals in the foreground of your process map.
- Map tools, skills, and performance metrics along with the process.
- Engage your people in process mapping to define problems and solutions. This must be cross functional.
- Determine how to create value for the customer throughout the process.

The fundamental objective of Six Sigma is the implementation of measurement-based strategies focused on reducing flaws, thus improving customer satisfaction.

Achieving Six Sigma requires mastering several stages: defining the process in question, measuring its performance, analyzing its effectiveness, implementing improvements, and controlling improvements over the long term.

You can use mind map to support Six Sigma processes.

For example, if we want to create a map of Six Sigma, we will get something like this:

Central topic - Six Sigma. Then:
Determine customer expectations of the process
How often to defects occur?
Why, when, and where do they occur?
How can we fix the process?
How can we make it stay fixed?

And so on :)
