Yet when each part of the business chooses its own ABM approach and technology solution, costs explode and teams battle their peers for business, causing anarchy within the organization and sowing confusion among target accounts. The danger is that everyone ends up competing for resources; and too often those resources are poorly allocated when it comes to supporting the overall business strategy, which requires having a comprehensive view of what’s happening.
