 Sales managers work with and through
individuals and groups in the company, in the
sales force, and outside the firm to
accomplish their goals .
 The sales manager's main goal is to achieve
the levels of sales volume, profits, and
customer satisfaction desired by higher levels
of management.
 The factor underlying a manager's success in
achieving this goal is the ability to influence
the behavior of all parties involved.
 Planning defines where the organization
wants to be in the future and how to get
there.
 Planning is the conscious, systemic process
of making decisions about goals and
activities that an individual, group, work unit,
or organization will pursue in the future and
the use of resources needed to attain them.
 Managers develop plans for entire
organizations, for specific work units, and for
individuals. These plans may cover long
periods of time (five years or more) or a short
time horizon (days or weeks).
 They may be very general (e.g., to improve
profits through new product development) or
very specific (e.g., to reduce inventory of
product X by 10 percent over the next month
through an incentive system).
 In each case, however, managers are
responsible for gathering and analyzing the
information on which plans are based, setting
the goals to be achieved, and deciding what
needs to be done to achieve them.
 Although a good plan is important, a
manager usually cannot do the job alone.
 Staffing refers to activities undertaken to
attract, develop, and maintain effective sales
personnel within an organization
 Staffing involves two activities: people
planning and employment planning.
 The first determines how many and the type
of sales personnel to hire.
 Employment planning consists of recruiting,
selecting, and socializing people into the
sales group.
 Thus, hiring salespeople who become high
performers is very important to the success
of an organization.
 Sales managers spend much of their time
training their salespeople.
 Sales training is the effort put forth by an
employer to provide the salesperson job-
related culture, skills, knowledge, and
attitudes that result in improved performance
in the selling environment.
 Some authors distinguish between training
and development by noting that training
usually refers to teaching people how to do
their present jobs, whereas development
refers to teaching people the skills needed for
both present and future jobs. For simplicity,
both will be referred to as training
 The fourth sales management function is to
provide leadership for sales personnel—
salespeople as well as sales managers.
 Leading is the ability to influence other
people toward the attainment of objectives.
 Leading means communicating goals to
people throughout the sales group and
infusing people with the desire to perform at
a high level.
 For top corporate sales managers, leading
involves motivating entire departments and
divisions as well as those individuals working
immediately with the managers.
 A combination of comprehensive plans, good
people, quality training, and outstanding
leaders still does not guarantee success.
 It also takes understanding the
organization's past and present situation.
 Controlling means monitoring sales
personnel's activities, determining whether
the organization is on target toward its goals,
and making corrections as necessary.
 Sales managers must ensure continuously
that the organization is moving toward its
goals.
 Specific controlling activities are to set
performance standards that indicate progress
toward long-term goals;
 to monitor performance of people and units
by collecting performance data;
 to provide people with feedback or informa-
tion about their progress;
 to identify performance problems by
comparing performance data against
standards;
 and to take actions to correct problems.
 Budgeting, cost cutting, and disciplinary
action are just a few of the tools of control.
