Putting Sales at the Center of Strategy
Frank V. Cespedes
Frank Cespedes is a Senior Lecturer at Harvard Business School and author of Aligning Strategy and Sales (Harvard Business Review Press, forthcoming).

Research reveals four steps companies can take to improve the alignment between strategy and sales.
1. Communicate the Strategy
2. Continually Improve Sales Productivity
3. Improve Human Performance
Companies need to understand which sales skills are most important to their particular strategy and work to upgrade them.
4. Make Strategy Relevant
Most C-suite executives know value-creation levers, but too few understand and operationalize the sales factors that make strategies successful. The strategists have to conceive the objections of potential customers and prepare answers and activities to provide acceptable answers.
