A must read book for sales teams

What did you love best about Beyond the Sales Process?

This book is the compendium of all the sales steps required in a strategic B2B sales process. All the phases,are there. All the questions for each phase are asked and all the considerations for each question or analysis are relevant. It is clear when you hear the text that the authors have an extensive experience of the sales process. This is a book written by pro's. I'll need to buy the paper book for future reference.

Some of the most interesting insights are those when the authors describe the client point of view during the sales process.


What about Jeff Cummings’s performance did you like?

Jeff Cummins is an outstanding narrator. I am not a native english speaking person and I could clearly understand every single word.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All the client cases are excellent and rich in content and insight. The client cases are described with the reader in mind telling you the what, how and why the strategic process was relevant for that case. The testimonials of the clients are relevant.
