How to use this template

BANT stands for Budget, Authority, Need, Timing. Though many organizations adapt the model to mean slightly different things, the original model looks like this:

  • Budget: What is the prospect's budget?
  • Authority: Does the prospect have decision-making authority, or is she an influencer?
  • Need: What is the prospect's business need?
  • Time frame: In what time frame will the prospect be implementing a solution?
