To understand complex and strategic decision making, we conducted an in-depth examination of the manufacturing location selection decision- making process of five organizations. We propose sales management guidelines and directions for future theoretical investigations based on the decision-making processes. Specifically, implications for sales force selling complex and strategic products and services (e.g., location and technology platforms) are addressed. The results suggest an adaptation of national or key accounts may be the best sales strategy for selling products and services that entail complex and strategic decision making

This paper reports the results of a study of the cultural influences on career systems and job promotion. The authors report the conclusions reached during the first phase of a large European study on managerial decision-making. Nearly 300 managers participated in this phase, which surveyed 25 firms from the financial sectors of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Models built upon Sonnenfeld and Peiperl's career typology and on Derr and Evans et al. cultural career maps are examined. The results of this study indicate that nationality is a good determinant of the choice of internal or external promotion systems. It also finds that individual self-interest remains an important factor in managerial decision-making. The authors conclude that human resource programs designed to standardise career management policy across Europe may fail because of intentional and unintentional barriers.

Knowing where value resides from the standpoint of the customer has become critical for suppliers. In this article, the construct of customer-perceived value is first assessed through a literature review. Then a multiple-item measure of customer value is developed, and our approach is illustrated by the marketing strategy development project of a major chemical manufacturer in international markets. The article finally discusses how the customer value audit can be linked to marketing strategy development and provides guidelines for managerial actions
