Hawks, Seagulls, & Mice is an eye-opening resource for executives, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and everyone else involved in sales and marketing in business markets. It presents business-tested conceptual and quantitative models for driving performance in creating customers and capturing profits in plain-spoken terms and supported by numerous case studies and examples. Explore business markets from the following perspectives:

  • Strategic growth patterns
  • Sales and marketing organization design
  • Sales and marketing activity management
  • Customer buying process
  • Psychological and business value communication
  • Sales and marketing performance audits


“Finally! Someone has shifted the old B2B paradigm of sales and marketing and provided some dynamic, new, easy-to-use, quantitative models for integrating the two around business goals.”
