I like the point about being perversely incentivized. Often, from the perspective of the potential buyer in a B2B play, if your product makes it easier to do my job, then I might not want it simply because it makes me less valuable to the company. They think: “Why pay me X amount per year when my company can purchase a solution that does much of my job automatically?”
