Justin Roff-Marsh in The Media
Justin is a regular guest speaker at scores of industry events, conferences, and association meetings throughout North America, Europe, and Australia. He regularly contributes articles and interviews to publications around the globe. Read, watch and listen to his latest thinking on all topics related to the design and management of modern-day sales processes.

The Machine is Justin Roff-Marsh’s Axiom award-winning book on sales transformation. In The Machine, Justin shows executives how to build a ridiculously efficient sales process to out-communicate, outsell and ultimately, outgrow their competition.
The Machine decimates current sales management orthodoxy and replaces it with a strange new world where sales is primarily an inside activity, where salespeople earn fixed salaries and focus their attention exclusively on selling conversations, where regional sales offices become redundant, and where marketing and engineering become seamlessly integrated with sales.
The Machine is a field guide for the executive who’s prepared to wrestle sales away from autonomous field-based artisans in favor of a tightly synchronized team of specialists.
Beyond the Machine Short Course
Our Beyond The Machine Short Course is a collection of four SPE master classes. Each class builds upon what’s taught in The Machine and includes practical tips and insights from building SPE at the frontlines. A typical class goes for about 25 minutes.
Class One: Meaningful Sales Interactions (sets the groundwork for your transition to SPE). Class Two: A Powerhouse customer service team. (More than anything else, the successful transition to SPE relies on your ability to build a robust customer service team). Class Three: How to generate sales opportunities. (A deep dive into the critical workflow we recommend for originating sales opportunities.) Class Four: How to prosecute sales opportunities. We explore how best to go about converting sales opportunities into sales.
The Machine Sampler
The Machine Sampler is the first four chapters of Justin Roff-Marsh’s awarding-winning book on sales transformation, The Machine. These chapters set the scene for the need for a fundamental shift in the way modern B2B organizations sell and the key principles driving change. Learn the four principles of re-envisioning the sales function and why the modern field salesperson is a misnomer.
Reengineering the Sales Process
This is Justin’s first book. It is a compilation of some plus 20 articles (101 pages) on all things related to Sales Process Engineering. It is still as relevant today as when it was first written some 15 plus years ago.
SPE Practitioner Tips (sign up)
SPE Practitioner Tips is a collection of practical tips for improving your organization’s sales process and performance. Each tip is deliberately short (a minute or so to read) and delivers at least one valuable take-away you can go and apply immediately.

Topics covered include sales management and coaching, lead generation and the practical application of SPE to an organization. You will receive a new tip roughly every two weeks.
This collection of articles written by Justin tells you why you should stop caring about personal relationships (as it relates to B2B selling) and almost every other touted truism used in sales. Read Justin’s insights on the fundamental problems that plague modern sales, the folly of personal relationships in B2B selling, why you need to stop paying your salespeople commissions, why revenue should always be the responsibility of Operations, never Sales and more!

Inbound Breakout Session: Death of Field Sales
This is a live recording of Justin’s keynote presentation at Hubspot’s Inbound conference. In this keynote speech, Justin argues that field sales is dead already. Pretty much everyone already knows (intuitively, at least) but no one’s prepared to acknowledge it.
He then goes on to explain why: 1. Why you should view sales as essentially an inside function 2. Why salespeople should NOT be autonomous (and should NOT be paid commissions) 3. Why salespeople should do nothing but sell (30 meaningful selling interactions a day) 4. Why the distinction between sales and marketing departments is a false (and a devastating) one 5. Why qualification is a value-destroying activity.
