The authors of this book deal in a serious, readable fashion with a number of important problems in personal selling. They view the process of persuasion between salesman and prospect from the vantage of modern communication theory and develop a model based on sales competence and sales activities. Known as COMPACT, this unique model offers a logical way of evaluating the activities salesmen perform and the skill with which they carry out their assignments. COMPACT provides the executive with a technique for classifying and comparing the activities of sales people and can lead to improve methods for solving the problems of selecting, training, organizing, motivating, and compensating salesmen.
