How I think

  • As a sales professional, focus on the Buyer's Journey over the Sales Process. 

  • Effective qualification of deals is the #1 barrier that stumps a sales pipeline.  Qualify deals properly and measurably.

  • Listen not to what the market asks for, but for what the market needs.  Use the Challenger Sale approach to win the trust of the Buyer.​​

  • Data, algorithms, and the question to be answered are not separable.  Systems thinking is required.

  • Statistics, ML, and AI are all based on the same classical thinking that is taught at school.  Causal requires Bayesian & network thinking.

  • Descriptive analytics trumps all.  Stare at the data and discover the patterns.  Be a detective, like Columbo!

  • Understand the domain, then the math, and only then the code.  If you start with the code / models, you will be trapped inside somebody else's assumptions.

  • In multi-disciplinary companies and industries, the biggest opportunities as well as failures can come from the many languages used.  Scientists, engineers, software coders etc all think and speak differently.
