5.0 étoiles sur 5 Go Beyond Sales Scripts to Adding Value for Customers 10 juin 2003
Par Donald Mitchell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Hope Is Not a Strategy is most valuable for those who are new to large account and large ticket selling. For those with lots of experience, the book is helpful in providing a structure for sales team planning and coordination.
As a test of the book's relevance, I took a potential sale that our firm is wrestling with and put it through the process. A number of valuable insights came from pursuing Mr. Page's process that would probably not have otherwise become part of our approach. Whether the sale will succeed or not, I don't know, but our effort definitely became more effective as a result. I happily give a book that provides that kind of benefit five stars. Thank you!
The book has four sections:
1. The Challenge -- The Complex Sale
2. The Solution -- R.A.D.A.R. (which stands for "R.eading A.ccounts and D.eploying A.ppropriate R.esources")
3. Strategies for Execution
4. Winning before the Battle -- Account Management
The first section was the least helpful to me (after pursuing complex sales for over 30 years, there wasn't really any new background here). If you are new to complex sales, this material will probably be a real eye-opener . . . especially if you are used to individual sales based on a standard approach. The most amusing section was on how to blend talent on a sales team to get the right mix of skills and orientation. You'll learn about Tellers, Sellers, Hunters, Farmers, Business Developers, Partners, and the Industry-Networked Consultant.
The second section was the heart of the book for me, describing R.A.D.A.R. which is "a simplified, six-step process that combines consultative, competitive, and political sales principles into a concise yet comprehensive process." There's a chapter on each element.
Value is the first challenge and you are supposed to link your solutions to the customer's pain or gain at the largest possible scale. Value stretches as a chain of value whose links (from highest to lowest value) are strategic advantage, political risk, financial return, cultural change, operational applications, and future/capability -- tools).
Resource allocation is the second challenge, and your job is to qualify the prospect to see if you can profitably deliver what that customer needs.
Selling strategy is the third challenge, and you try to "win their hearts before it starts" by looking at how you could win or lose in advance so you can build a competitive preference for you and your offering. This frequently involves developing the specifications.
Organizational politics is the fourth challenge, and you should go where the power is and keep climbing to higher levels. You should ideally sell to the CEO.
Teamwork is the final challenge and you accomplish this by communicating your strategic selling plan throughout your team and partners.
In the third section, the most useful part for me was encouragement to change issues and sales tactics to help your potential customer see the maximum advantage you can provide. This may mean changing the scope of the problem and the solutions you offer.
I felt most comfortable with the fourth section because I try to stay in contact with clients for many years in order to help them become alert to opportunities where we can help them. In the consulting business, that approach is important because almost everything is custom made for the client. You need to know each other well before you can help them in the best ways.
Throughout the book, there are sidebars with specific examples of the principles being described in the main text. These were helpful for the most part. My only complaint is that they were too often about selling computer systems.
If all of these points seem like second nature to you, you may find it more valuable to seek out a more advanced book on complex sales.
After you finish reading the book, think back to a complex sale that you unexpectedly lost. How could the process in this book have helped you to avoid that result?
Good luck!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Required reading for others than just the sales reps! 5 février 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This work is based on common sense selling principles that have proven themselves consistently in the enterprise level selling arena whether the solution is e-commerce enabling, network infrastructure or high value consulting. Page very effectively frames the complex selling environment itself before outlining a methodology to attack it. This is one of the primary strengths of the book and why I believe it is appropriate for readers other than just sales reps or sales managers.
The first five chapters of the book offer significant value to CEO's, CFO's, senior Marketing officers and other members of the management team who share in the responsibility for developing and understanding their company's "go to market" strategy. I have also recommended this book to friends in the venture community who are challenged by the fact that one or more of their portfolio companies is struggling with delivery of their value proposition and consistency of forecast information.
I am familiar with the methodology presented in the book having embraced it both in the ERP and internet worlds and find it to be presented in a logical, straightforward manner. Controlling the Complex Sale is the most comprehensive, yet implementable, methodology developed for the "knowledge worker" sales executive. Keeping this book at hand to frequently review the fundamentals can be of high value to sales executive or sales manager.
Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Better than you expect it to be! 14 mai 2003
Par Robert Burns - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am an avid reader, and successful sales executive. I have read nearly every book in the bibliography and many others on sales. I avoided buying this book for months because it looked "basic" when thumbing through it in airports and book stores. I finally bought the paperback version and I was amazed at how wrong I was. EVERY Sentence in the book is important! Tom Kosnik's quote on the cover is dead on. This book is worth the value of 12 books on sales in it takes every lesson learned in the field or taught in a book and presents it in a clear, logical and concise manner. It's not that the information is brilliantly new but it is brilliantly presented. Fantastic a must read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Selling to Power 25 mars 2002
Par Steve Hicks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Rick's methodology in Hope is not a Strategy is the most complete collection of sales clarity I have read. In a complex selling environment, the most valuable asset a salesperson has is his/her time. Qualifying correctly can continually keep you on the path to realizing true revenue potential. Ricks' methodology for qualifying as well as selling to power has increased my region's revenues and profits by 70% since we started following his methodology. This is a book worth much more than the suggested retail price. It can literally change your success rate over night. Thanks for sharing your wisdom Rick!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 High impact performance! 6 décembre 2001
Par Sales Maven - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a practical guide to understanding the criticality of strategic planning to win large, complex sales. It adds elements which other methodologies do not address (ie, the political/competitive aspect) The author incorporates real life stories for relevance and adds humor to the content as well!
This is written by the founder of the Complex Sale who has had a high impact on the sales performance of many high tech firms adding credibility to the content. I was formerly responsible for Worldwide sales training at Oracle, and The Complex Sale staff and methodology contributed to the bottom line!
