This program immerses you in a collaborative learning environment intensely focused on practical ways to significantly improve sales force performance. Guided by our seasoned faculty, you will learn practice-proven principles, strategies and tactics, then explore how to apply them to some of the most challenging sales issues companies face in an era of e-commerce: sales force design and deployment, talent development, compensation and effectiveness.
You’ll set the stage for getting the most out of this learning experience by conducting a critical assessment of your sales force against best practices across the core drivers of sales force effectiveness. From there, you’ll identify practical approaches for enhancing team performance and learn how to implement and lead success-focused change to drive the achievement of your most important growth priorities.
