Innovative sales managers in high demand

The digital era has brought about significant changes in the sales funnel. Modern consumers demand information online, and often 60% of the buying decision is made even before the prospect engages with a salesperson.
It is therefore not surprising that good interpersonal skills and a large network of contacts are no longer sufficient qualities for being a successful sales manager. The modern sales manager is a tech-savvy business strategist, who can balance effective people management with quick decision-making, innovative thinking and constant change management.

Currently, sales managers have the highest demand of vacancies in South Africa in the managerial occupation group, making sales management an attractive career option.
