About the course

Manage the main challenges that confront your company in sales management

Customer-centricity is a concept touted by many companies, yet difficult to implement in practice. ESMT’s Managing Sales program is designed to support sales leaders in this endeavor. You will be equipped with the latest methods and tools as well as learn from the successes and failures of other companies: from understanding customers’ wants to decoding their true needs; from gaining customers’ buy-in to aligning internal processes. Learn how to facilitate a more customer-centric sales team with clearly defined roles, tasks, and selling behavior. Develop new ideas to improve sales in your own organization, receive feedback from faculty and peers, and leave the program with a concrete action plan.
