Sales isn’t about pushing products or being efficient; it’s about building the right systems to manage and empower your salespeople.

If you read nothing else on sales, read these 10 articles. We’ve combed through hundreds of Harvard Business Review articles and selected the most important ones to help you understand how to create the conditions for sales success.

This book will inspire you to:

  • Understand your customer’s buying center
  • Integrate your sales and marketing operations
  • Assess your business cycle and its impact on your sales force
  • Transition away from solution sales
  • Leverage the power of micromarkets
  • Introduce tiebreaker selling and consensus selling
  • Motivate your sales force properly

Bonoma; “Ending the War Between Sales and Marketing,” by Philip Kotler, Neil Rackham, and Suj Krishnaswamy; “Match Your Sales Force Structure to Your Business Life Cycle,” by Andris A. Zoltners, Prabhakant Sinha, and Sally E. Lorimer; “The End of Solution Sales,” by Brent Adamson, Matthew Dixon, and Nicholas Toman; “Selling into Micromarkets,” by Manish Goyal, Maryanne Q.
