Click on logo to access ESR's websiteES Research Group (ESR) is the research and advisory company that Dave Stein founded in 2005 along with N. Adam Rin, Ph.D., former president of Gartner Research.

ESR was established in order to fill a huge knowledge gap in the sales training industry. Before ESR there was no independent intelligence available that provided objective comparisons of sales training companies.

Combining our expertise in sales performance improvement with our proficiency in research, we offer companies a unique perspective from which to make their crucial and costly sales training decisions. Since ESR does not provide sales training, we are in the exclusive position of remaining independent and therefore providing you with an completely objective view.

ESR researches, reports on, and advises companies in the following areas:

  • sales training courses and programs
  • sales training methodologies
  • technology-enabled selling, especially Sales 2.0
  • sales performance measurement
  • unbiased, up to date information on the vendors that deliver these services

Our offerings include expert assistance in:

All of our offerings—briefs, reports and consulting assistance—are available in cost-saving, annual subscriptions/memberships or can be purchased individually by registered guests. Our first rate podcasts are complimentary and intended as continuing education for all of our readers.
