Sales Teams at Lexmark Canada Inc.
(8 pages of text)
Lexmark Canada is the Canadian arm of Lexmark Inc., the global manufacturer of computer printers and related products. Lexmark Canada had reorganized its salesforce into teams of salespeople to manage regions of Canada. This was a fairly dramatic shift from an individual-based structure and compensation system. There was mixed reaction to the change with the Quebec team recently losing two of its three team members. The case addresses salesforce organization and deployment issues, and the factors that need to be considered in making these decisions. It also demonstrates the linkages between sales management decisions, since in this situation reward and recognition, recruitment and selection, and training all needed to be revisited. Finally, it highlights the current shift to team selling in many industries.
