Counter Make the most of sales and marketing Those who have direct responsibility for sales and marketing organizations, as well as those who want more knowledge about the best practices in these critical areas, will gain new and important insights from Dan Stowell's book. -- Bernard F. Sergesketter, vice president (retired), AT&T Forget the old-school approach to Sales and Marketing. These six winning practices put those departments back on par with the rest of the modern business world, and opens the door to higher profits. Based on studies in more than sixty companies -- many of them winners of the prestigious Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award -- this resource spotlights six reliable, results-generating improvement techniques, and shows how to deploy them successfully in the sales and marketing departments of any organization. The author describes each winning practice in detail, explains how each applies to sales and marketing, and provides illuminating examples of how Texas Instruments, Federal Express, Xerox and many other equally successful but less well known companies have applied the six practices in their organizations. Includes practical guidance for avoiding common pitfalls, along with an action plan for implementation.
