You appear to know that sales group pretty well. A few notes though. BN has actually sold more than $100MM in software during his SAP tenure. And while all you say about his ability to criticize, especially the former GM of his group, he elected to hang it up anyway. THAT makes a statement about how bad things are regarding SAP senior managements respect of talented sales professionals.
Actually I didnt say he "especially criticized the former GM of his group"
I said that he stated that he could count on one finger the SAP executives that he felt had any moral fiber. So don't hang everything on BM, BN was often talking about the very, very top brass and he never hid it.
Of course he chose to "hang it up" he was disgusted, he sold an incountable amount of software (although not nearly $100M - sorry) and he wanted no part of moving up or moving on in today's operation.
Without BN, I cannot count on any fingers, the number of SAP executives that have any morals.
