Business Outcome Selling Strategies: How Next Gen B2B Sales Organizations Accelerate Sales Productivity, Operationalize Hyper-Growth Strategies, Lock (Jeb Blount)
As the speed of business continues to accelerate, B2B enterprises and sales organizations are being disintermediated and disrupted by digital transformation and artificial intelligence.
The Amazon effect is permanently altering buying experience expectations while technology has lowered the barriers to entry. "Me-too" competitors lurk around every corner making differentiation a fundamental challenge and margin erosion a constant threat.
Along the way, the Business to Business buying journey has fundamentally changed.
In this brutal new age of business, every B2B enterprise faces a looming and existential threat of irrelevance and extinction. The undeniable truth is that in this hyper-competitive paradigm, there are only two alternatives:
1. A race to the bottom in which price becomes the sole differentiator, customers are merely transactions, and your products and services are viewed as commodities.
2. A race to relevance in which you separate yourself from, and rise above, the "me-too" horde with a shift away from pitching "stuff" to a customer-centric focus on delivering real, sustainable value through Measurable Business Outcomes.
This is exactly why the world's most agile and profitable companies, along with the highest earning sales professionals, are taking the lead in the race to relevance by transforming how they approach the buying journey.
