SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Former SVP of Sales Productivity at Salesforce.com, Elay Cohen, today announced the release of SALESHOOD: How Winning Sales Managers Inspire Sales Teams to Succeed. SalesHood is the first book that addresses the broken, one-size-fits all sales productivity model with a new collaborative framework that is relevant and immediately usable. Based on Elay's eight years of sales leadership at Salesforce.com that played a large part in accelerating the company's growth to a $3 billion-plus enterprise, SalesHood is the playbook for sales managers -- empowering them to think like CEOs and act like entrepreneurs.
In SalesHood, Cohen shares how sales managers can build an inspired, engaged team -- equipping them with the tools they need to drive up sales productivity and grow the business. He reveals, among many other lessons, how you can nurture a winning sales culture; build world-class training programs that encourage salespeople to learn from each other; and execute sales processes, playbooks, and deals in a way that gives your salespeople the winning edge.
"After working with thousands of organizations, it became clear to me that one key player was best positioned to accelerate growth in companies: the first-line sales manager," said Elay Cohen, author, SalesHood. "This book centers on empowering sales leaders through a community of peers and shared experiences -- ultimately enabling sales managers to lead their own sales programs as entrepreneurs would."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before.

DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
