Stand aside, we’re coming through! That’s the cry of a new generation of technology vendors. They have a new approach to enabling success for their customers. And they’re thriving as a result.
These vendors all have subscription pricing at the heart of their business. Many were ‘born in the cloud’. But others have made the transition from traditional vendors to Cloud, SaaS and PaaS. Each has learned that if customers don’t feel they’ve had success, recurring revenue doesn’t grow and may even decline.
What makes them different? They have absolute clarity about what the customer considers success to be. And they’ve built their business around enabling that success. They know it’s the outcomes for the customer that count. They’re all members of the Outcome Generation.
This book provides a practical framework for vendors to join the Outcome Generation.
Subscription pricing and recurring revenue are changing the technology landscape. The power has moved back to customers. If customers don’t feel successful, the vendor’s revenue suffers. Paul shows vendors how to turn this change to their advantage._

Jordan Harris, new CEO at Leader Manufacturing, has a bold vision for the future; one that’s excited the board, executives and the staff. Now he must execute.
But, it isn’t working!
Jordan learns, in a most uncomfortable way, of a botched delivery to their second largest customer. He discovers even deeper issues which, if not fixed, will mean his career as CEO is over.
He is rocked to discover a missing link between his strategies and execution and to realise he is responsible for all that has gone wrong. He responds, developing a unique and enduring solution.
A work of fiction, the book brings into sharp focus a challenge facing every organisation – to execute strategies you must first have the capability to execute them, and you must develop this capability.
It’s an endemic challenge and the compelling, unique and enduring solution developed by Jordan is suitable for any organization.
