Abstract

A newly appointed Middle East regional marketing manager for a major sanitary ware producer is exploring options to improve sales forecasts.

Regional sales were driven mainly by large construction projects in the Gulf countries. A new approach that explicitly considers the status of each project and the stock-keeping units (SKUs) demanded shows promise.
