This could not be more true than in our current day scenario where companies all over the world are being forced to re-think how they sell.

A major disruptor of the sales funnel is, of course, the buyer - a buyer today is a lot more informed, they have access to innumerable channels of information to educate themselves. They no longer depend on salespeople to provide top-level information and educate them on products. Buyers are entering the sales process much later and salespeople have less opportunity to influence the purchasing decision.
