Editorial Reviews

Review

“[The authors] wrote a definitive book on this topic... I highly recommend it.”

-BusinessWeek Online



“Andris Zoltners, Parbhakant Sinha, and Sally Lorimer wrote a definitve book on this topic, The Complete Guide to Sales Force Incentive Compensation: How to Design and Implement Plans that Work (Amacom, 2006). It’s about 500 pages long and costs $65. That may sound expensive until you realize that’s the cost of about 30 minutes of consulting, and less than the price of one ‘please don’t leave us to work for our competitor’ lunch, I highly recommend it.”

--Michelle Nichols, BusinessWeek.com columnist

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAME on December 7, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Planning the ideal salesforce incentive compensation program is very challenging. Pay enough, and you'll energize your salespeople. Pay too much, and you'll throw money away while turning salespeople into loafers who can get by on fewer sales. Pay too little, and you'll push your best salespeople out the door. But how much is enough, too much or too little? How do you figure out the best mix of salary, commissions and bonuses to pay your salespeople? This comprehensive compensation guide is a good place to start answering these questions. Written by sales and marketing experts Andris A. Zoltners, Prabhakant Sinha and Sally E. Lorimer, this is your essential map for developing and implementing the ideal compensation incentive plan for your salespeople. getAbstract recommends it to sales managers who want to do a better job of meeting their personnel needs and, therefore, their sales targets. (Read this before you negotiate compensation with anyone else.)

I have purchased and read just about every Sales Comp book on Amazon. This is by far the most comprehensive and contains the most real-world examples. Very pleased with this purchase.

THis book is thorough and has all the tools and distinctions you need to design a great compensation plan for sales people. It totally changed how I see the situation and how to manage it. Pay is only a small part.
