Sales Performance International Announces The Collaborative Sale
CHARLOTTE, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
Sales Performance International (SPI) announced today the publication of
The Collaborative Sale, the definitive guide to the new reality of sales
in a world of empowered buyers. The Collaborative Sale was co-authored
by Keith M. Eades, Founder and CEO of SPI, and Timothy T. Sullivan,
Director of Business Development at SPI, both leading authorities on
global sales transformation.
"With the pace of innovation continuing to accelerate, buyers can become
overwhelmed with the amount of information that is available to them,"
said Jim Ninivaggi, Service Director of Sales Enablement Strategies,
SiriusDecisions. "The job of the sales person is to work with buyers
collaboratively to provide them with the right resources, insights and
information to help them attain a maximized return on investment."
According to Keith Eades, "The rise of information access has empowered
buyers to assert more control over their buying decisions, and sellers
must adapt to survive."
The Collaborative Sale provides a roadmap for adapting through sales
collaboration, detailing the foundations, personae, and reality of the
new marketplace. The book provides insight into the new buyer's thought
processes, the new sales personae required to align with the new buyers,
and how to establish and implement a dynamic sales process.
Topics addressed in this groundbreaking work include:
Selling in times of economic uncertainty, broad information access,
and new buyer behavior
Why collaboration and transparency are essential and valuable to new
The emergence of new sales personae - Micro-marketer, Visualizer, and
Buyer alignment, risk mitigation, and the myth of control
Situational fluency, and the role of technology

Implementation and establishment of a dynamic sales process
Peter Ostrow, Vice President and Group Director for Sales Effectiveness
& Strategy, Aberdeen (News - Alert) Group, commented that, "Our research shows that
successful selling requires collaboration; the challenge for sellers is
knowing how to collaborate effectively. The Collaborative Sale provides
useful and practical guidance for sales professionals to make a
difference to their customers."
The book describes the essential competencies for collaborative selling,
