  • Why so many companies believe they have a problem with their sales force...and why they are so often wrong.
  • The two big problems that are often at the heart of rampant discounting and high numbers of exception requests.
  • How to position changes to the underlying pricing architecture so that salespeople can recognize personal benefits.
  • How to diagnose the real problems and get management support and buy-in for the necessary corrective actions.
