Program Overview

Product distribution management has long been a continuing business challenge. Complex supply chain issues often cause finished goods for distribution to come too late, allowing competitors to seize the business opportunity and grab market share.
This competitive landscape made effective distribution management practices integral to supply chain, sales, and inventory management. Successful distribution involves many moving parts and methods requiring a strong distribution management strategy fueled by real-time information. Essentially, the partner distributors are considered part of a company’s sales team and are in charge of driving direct and indirect distribution of the products. Effective and efficient distribution of products translates to more visibility,
awareness, penetration, and trial of the products and ultimately impacts market shares and competitiveness.

The program will take the participants on a journey – from introducing them to successful sales processes to equip them to design their sales strategies for the general trade, manage a portfolio of brands for selling, and finally think about how to embed the sales operating discipline at
all levels of the organization. Participants will be exposed to several resource industry experts who can share real-life best practices in critical areas of commercial operations.
