Coursera: Strategic Sales Management Final Project

 with  Samantha Mazzero and Nelson Yoshida
Welcome to Course 5 – Strategic Sales Management Final Project.
In this course, you’ll develop the final project of the specialization, which is an application of the whole set of concepts, models, frameworks, tools, and techniques discussed and practiced through the four previous courses.
A business case provides the business context to serve as the reference to support your analyses regarding strategy, marketing, and sales integration. The case is adapted from a real-life experience. Having developed these analyses, you will follow the project instructions that lead you to the application of the concepts you have learned so far, and proceed to the sales planning processes to support the development of a sales guidelines, which will support the sales planning process in a later moment.
The primary learning outcome of this course is to master concepts application to create sales guidelines, based on a structured analysis of a business case. The sales guidelines serve as the background of a sales plan structure, and they also connect the sales planning process to the strategy, at the same time that supports the development of a sales plan at a later moment.
Whereas the sales plan structure may not be a detailed sales plan, it will provide all the aspects necessary to develop the sales plan later.
The project will be peer-reviewed, and the instructions to develop it also bring the rubrics to develop the review.

Syllabus

Module 1 - Strategy & Sales
In this module, you will review the concepts of Courses 1 & 2, analyze a business case context that brings more details regarding the business case you have worked on in Course 1 and go through a final quiz with questions that are focused on the business context of the case. The learning outcome of this module is to master the applicability of concepts discussed in Effective Sales Overview (Course 1) and Sales Strategy (Course 2) in a particular business context - The printing and graphics industry case with the additional information of Supplement B.

Module 2 - Effective Sales Planning Through Strategic Analysis
In this Module 2, 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 B) 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.

Module 3 - Sales Models, frameworks, and Marketing Alignment
In this module, you will review the concepts of Courses 3 & 4, analyze a business case context that brings more details regarding the business case you have worked on in Course 1 and go through a final quiz with questions that are focused on the business context of the case. The learning outcome of this module is to master the applicability of concepts discussed in Models and Frameworks (Course 3) and Sales & Marketing Alignment (Course 4) in a particular business context - The printing and graphics industry case with the additional information of Supplement C.

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.
