What Readers Have to Say
“This book will be of great benefit for any distributor who wants to develop an effective strategy, especially those who don’t know where to start. It shows how to develop a plan that your organization can execute successfully, which is where most fail. It opened my eyes to the need to match the plan to the resources of the organization. Like most things in distribution, less really is more.”
Charles Lingenfelter, President and CEO, Industrial Distribution Group
“The current business environment is forcing all of us to re-examine our business model no matter how successful it may have historically been. This book provides an excellent launching board from which to start that process. Every chapter contains examples of accurate and identifiable real-world situations. This clear grounding in distributor reality forced me to take all of their findings seriously regardless of how much they conflicted with my own internal beliefs. The text is concise, interesting, and actionable.”
