Greater Control over Sales Performance

Neil Rackam, Author of the very popular book, SPIN Selling, expressed it best: "There's an acute shortage of good books on the specifics of sales management. Cracking the Sales Management Code is about the practical specifics of sales management in the new era, and fills a void".

This book is for executives and sales managers who want greater control over sales performance. It is also helpful for a sales professional who needs to understand how they can focus on the activities that help to achieve the selling objectives defined by management. 


The book is based on new research on:

  • how world-class sales forces measure and manage their sellers

  • a best practice approach to identify and implement the critical activities and metrics that drive business results

  • how to effectively manage a sales force 

It is a must-read for anyone in sales management or sales operations who want to clarify the task of sales management and put in place the strategies, processes, tools, and metrics to proactively manage sales performance.

In our business of the design, implementation and support of CRM systems, like Saleslogix and ACT, we hear the struggles of sales management who have one of the most complex jobs in a company. This book helps sales managers with a methodology and framework so they canhelp their sellers focus on the right sales process, the right metrics and the right sales tools for their sales people to succeed.
