Science of Six Sigma to the Art of Sales and Marketing (Paperback), by Michael J.
Pestorius, ASQ Quality Press; 1st edition (November 7, 2006).
Six Sigma is a
highly flexible methodology and tool set, but few practitioners have successfully
transferred the early successes Six Sigma enjoyed in manufacturing to sales and marketing.
The opportunities to use it exist, but the expertise on how to apply it is lacking. This
book provides step by step instructions on how to use data and measures to tackle common
business challenges. An analysis of the territory planning process provides tools and
techniques to improve the effectiveness of sales forces that suboptimize their efforts by
calling on the wrong customers. It shows sales leadership how to use readily available
data to ensure that the "right" customers are receiving the attention they need.
It also quantifies the real cost of spending time with customers that are not improving
the bottom line. A historical analysis of promotions takes the guesswork out of developing
future sales campaigns. It does this by taking the time to define a specific goal and
developing metrics that will allow side by side comparisons of past promotions. Once armed
with this knowledge, future promotions stand a greater chance of achieving their goals. Information

rapid-fire, global economy, insightful business policy and on-target strategy are
essential for a corporation's survival. Business globalization, deregulation, mergers,
acquisitions, strategic alliances, and international joint ventures-along with the new
emphasis placed on shareholders-contribute to feelings of uncertainty throughout the
marketplace. Add to that the constantly changing e-commerce environment and staying
current with plans and procedures becomes even more crucial. By analyzing corporate
functions such as marketing, production, operations, and finance, Business Policy and
Strategy: The Art of Competition, Seventh Edition teaches students how to successfully
formulate, implement, and evaluate corporate strategy. The textbook reviews basic and
alternative strategy policies and provides students with an understanding of strategic
management-how to deal with environmental change and formulate strategic alternatives.
Expertly blending theory with practicality, the authors provide the tools necessary to
navigate through the current highly competitive business environment. Information

antitrust law is global antitrust law. Markets are becoming increasingly global, or at
least multinational. Mergers between large corporations must typically get approval in
both the United States and in the EU, and other nations too. Cartels in one nation affect
supply in others, and countries are increasingly entering into treaties with each other
about the content or enforcement of competition laws. Thus, businesspeople, lawyers, and
lawmakers can no longer content themselves with understanding only the antitrust and
competition law of their home country. Modern antitrust law also differs from traditional
antitrust law in that it now reflects the dominance of the economic model of analysing
antitrust and competition policy. Against this background, this new casebook represents
the first comprehensive effort to examine US and EC competition law cases and decisions
within a common analytical framework strongly based on economic theory. It is an
innovative casebook addressed to all students, not only from the US and Europe, but also
from all jurisdictions having competition laws, providing an in-depth analysis of the two
major global antitrust regimes in the world, and a summary of the parallel antitrust laws
elsewhere in the world. As such it will also serve as a useful reference for
practitioners, competition officials, and policy-makers interested in competition law. Information
