Every business wants to accelerate sales, get the most from its marketing investments, equip its sales teams with the best content and most effective training, and create a great experience for its customers during the buying cycle. These things sound like discrete objectives, but they’re really not: they’re part of the overall objective of creating a higher-performing sales organization.

Unfortunately, sales and marketing professionals often fail to recognize the bigger objective. They treat the symptoms of their problems, which manifest themselves in sales and marketing issues that mid-level executives are charged with solving.
