I decided to dig a bit more deeply into those assertions and found a discrepancy between what is being portrayed as solution selling and Solution Selling®, the sales performance improvement intellectual property of Sales Performance International. (Note: SPI subscribes to ES Research Group’s research.)
My July/August column in Sales and Marketing Management magazine sheds some light on both modes of solution selling, and why there may be a misunderstanding out there in the sales training community.
No matter which side of the argument you’ve taken, I trust this column will establish the facts for any further debate.
