We've all heard stories of amazing product successes: the brilliant college kid who started a business in his dorm room; the team who built a business from the back of a napkin with just a few friends and sold it for millions. Yet for every amazing success story, there are thousands of stories of products that went nowhere. Most of us aren't looking at billion-dollar valuations; we're not looking for an exit. Instead we have a few ideas - some innovative, some not - and we're trying to determine which to pursue. Likely, you're working for a company today and you need a step-by-step approach to turn ideas, regardless of their source, into businesses. In Turn Ideas into Products, author Steve Johnson introduces a nimble idea-to-market process with strong emphasis on personal experience with customers. From business planning to product launch, this approach for managing products empowers your product team to work smarter and collaborate better with colleagues and customers.

Despite the fact that vast engineering networks are the foundations of modern society, the services that technology companies provide over them have been a relatively neglected area of study. As a result, marketing in some technology businesses has been depressingly tactical and inconsistent. Marketers with little experience, and even less professional training, run around presenting PowerPoint decks to each other, chasing after the latest fad and throwing erratic, changing activities at the market each quarter. Many work on the unchallenged assumption that markets are fast changing and that customers only want the lowest prices. Yet this industry has liberated human imagination in the internet and convinced the world that they must have a PC and a mobile phone. Now, as a result of profound, relentless, global forces, some of the leading firms and greatest minds in it are at last turning their attention to service. With the advent of ‘cloud computing’ and radical changes in the engineering of some utilities, the marketing of services that are based on a technical infrastructure is about to become as important and sophisticated as in, say, consumer products. This book explores their story and experience. “I really enjoyed the book From Products to Services by Mr Laurie Young. Encouraged by it, Haier accelerated its changeover from a traditional product-driven to a more customer-centric company. This new book Marketing Technology as a Service is another major contribution to technology companies for the cultivation of service needs worldwide.” – Mr Zhang Ruimin, CEO and Chairman, Haier Group, Beijing “Young and Burgess describe a shift in mindset and pragmatic techniques that are quite doable – Rae Sedel, MD, Global Technology Practice, Russell Reynolds Associates. “This book provides practical and insightful advice on how to use services to turn technology into value add solutions for real people – Rudy Provoost, CEO, Philips Lighting “Business leaders in India have been remarkably successful at offering technology based services like outsourcing across the world. Currently worth $60 billion, they intend to reach $300 billion by 2020. To succeed, the Indian business community must offer new value propositions and adapt to emerging trends, like cloud computing. Burgess and Young have put together the first comprehensive and practical guide for business leaders to meet their challenges of exponential growth.” – Dr Mukesh Aghi, Chairman and CEO, Steria (India)

A playbook that empowers sales managers to think like CEOs and act like entrepreneurs At Salesforce.com, Elay Cohen created and executed the sales productivity programs that accelerated the company's growth to a $3 billion-plus enterprise. The innovation delivered over these years by Elay and his team resulted in unprecedented sales productivity excellence. Based on that experience, Elay embarked on a journey to help every company in the world grow like Salesforce.com. After working with many organizations and further reflecting on his time at Salesforce.com, it became apparent that one key player was best positioned to accelerate growth in organizations: the first-line sales manager.

First-line sales managers are the backbone of every sales organization. They make it happen. They're where the rubber meets the road in pipeline generation, revenue growth, and customer success. These sales managers serve as the voice of salespeople to organizations, and as the organizational voice back to salespeople. In this accessible guide, 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.

ΣΤΗΝ ΠΑΓΩΜΕΝΗ ΛΕΥΚΟΤΗΤΑ ΤΟΥ ΒΕΡΜΟΝΤ… Ο Φρανκ Ραθ νόμιζε πως είχε ξεμπερδέψει με τις δολοφονίες όταν παρέδωσε το σήμα του αστυνομικού για να γίνει ιδιωτικός ντετέκτιβ και να μεγαλώσει την κόρη του ως ο μοναδικός της κηδεμόνας. Όμως η αστυνομία στην απομακρυσμένη ορεινή κοινότητα που ζει βρίσκει ένα εγκαταλελειμμένο αυτοκίνητο παρατημένο στον δρόμο και διαπιστώνει πως ανήκει σε μια πανέμορφη έφηβη που έχει εξαφανιστεί χωρίς κανένα ίχνος. Του ζητείται λοιπόν να αναλάβει την έρευνα… ΤΟ ΚΑΚΟ ΚΑΡΑΔΟΚΕΙ… Αυτή είναι μόνο η αρχή καθώς οι εξαφανίσεις νεαρών γυναικών διαδέχονται η μία την άλλη και ο Ραθ αναγκάζεται να αντιμετωπίσει τόσο τις συνέπειες του βίαιου και επώδυνου παρελθόντος του όσο και τις σκοτεινότερες εκδηλώσεις της ανθρώπινης ψυχής. ΚΑΙ ΚΑΝΕΙΣ ΔΕΝ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΣΦΑΛΗΣ.
