  • How and why sales performance alone is rarely an effective gauge of sales strategy quality.
  • How to use “ingredient assessment” to estimate the odds that your sales strategy is solid.
  • Seven areas where just asking and answering the right questions can be extremely revealing.
  • The most powerful and predictive "ingredient" that ensures your sales strategy is effective.
