Agile Sales Management Workshop

Sales teams and the management of those sales teams have not changed much in the past 50 years. The dictatorial sales manager who fires individuals for not attaining goals, yet receives little to no coaching is a way of the past. How do you know your sales team is getting the right vision, information, and support to succeed? This class teaches you how to shift to an Agile approach, solving traditional sales challenges while helping you make plans to implement Agile for your organization.
