Module 4 - Strategic Sales into Corporate Strategy

In this Module 4, you will apply the concepts you have reviewed in the previous Module. In this process, you will analyze the case and the additional information (Supplement C) and develop sales guidelines based on these analyses. The primary learning outcomes of this Module are the sales guidelines, which you will propose by analyzing specific strategic guidelines presented in the assignment prompts. Therefore, your sales guidelines propositions will have a connection to the company's strategic guidelines, and they'll also contribute in the sales planning process to support the sales plan structure, which eventually will contribute in the sales plan development. By the end of this Module, you will have proposed sales guidelines that cover most of the topics that relate to sales, marketing, and strategy. These guidelines comprise most of the guidance you will need to support the sales planning process, which eventually will generate the sales plan in a later moment. The final project of this specialization is not a sales plan; however, you'll have developed strategic sales guidelines that are crucial to support the sales plan development. At this point, it's important to mention again, most plans fail during the implementation and it happens because the processes follow the guidelines. If these guidelines are not good, the plan will not be good and the implementation will fail. Therefore, this final project is aimed at the development of the sales guidelines....
