Mark speaks up that there were a lot of people in the store, but Trump thinks this makes things worse - they really didnít have an excuse for not selling. Bill says that Mark didnít step up. Mark says that he understood the ball machine and batting cage, which was why he was there. How hard is it to run the ball machine? Do you really have to have an understanding of it before you use it? I mean, as long as you donít fire the balls at people, youíre pretty much golden.
Carolyn brings up the food-selling, which Jen doesnít think was a big deal. Carolyn points out that the task was about sales, not some sort of promotion. She wonders if everyone gets that now, since they didnít seem to get it during the task. Marshawn says that they did get it, but Carolyn isnít so sure.
Marshawn says that Josh was a great project manager. ďThatís not what I heard,Ē Trump replies. Carolyn agrees that Josh missed the mark. Marshawn says she still thought he was good. However, she did tell him that they werenít selling. She thinks that the batting cage was a distraction, a hindrance, and dangerous. People came in for fun, not with the mentality of buying something. Trump asks what Mark thought of Josh as a PM. Mark think she was good. He notes that Josh was helpful in other wins. Trump asks Jen for her opinion. Jen says that some of their priorities went out the window. Bill reminds her that she didnít sell. Jen says that the concept of the task changed. So? Bill says that people were there, they just didnít buy anything.
Trump asks Marshawn again how Josh was as PM. She says that he was well-organized but one of her philosophies is that a plan is not as important as planning. They had a great plan, but the planning wasnít that terrific. They also had no sales strategy and never even talking about selling. Trump tries to get Marshawn to say that, at crunch time, Josh wasnít so great. I hate when he tries to get people to say what he wants them to. Marshawn only says that the loss wasnít completely Joshís fault, though the task was his responsibility.
Carolyn asks role it was to sell. Josh says that Jen was in charge, thought it was really everyoneís responsibility, since it was a sales task. Trump asks who assigned Jen to sales. Josh says that since Jen called herself the Sales Queen, she was the natural choice. Trump says that Jen is good at selling, but Josh replies that itís not so apparent anymore. Jen says that sheís awesome if sheís in the right situation. You mean likeÖ a sales task? Marshawn and Rebecca speak up that they sold more than Jen. Trump asks Rebecca if her broken ankle is affecting her work. Rebecca replies that she tries not to let it. Trump wonders if men feel sorry for Rebecca and bought from her, but Rebecca replies tactfully that she sold a lot to people who werenít men. Jen and Marshawn say that Rebecca was great.
Bill notes that Jen is making a lot of excuses but barely made it out of the Boardroom last week. Jen blames Josh for the loss. Josh points out that she said she could sell. Jen says that she asked for what she needed but didnít get it. Josh thinks sheís lying. Jen says that she wasnít in charge of the event, she was in charge of sales. Of course, as Josh points out, she sold the least out of everyone else (except Mark, who sold nothing).
Trump asks Mark who he would fire. Mark names Jen. Jen would fire Josh (of course). Rebecca would fire Jen. Brian would fire Jen. James would fire Jen. Marshawn says that Mark didnít sell anything, so she would fire either him or Jen. Bill points out again that Mark didnít step up. Mark says that he told Josh he was concerned about the lack of selling, but he thought the clinic would be a good idea. Jen says that she was never told the situation would change from a sales task to an expo. Who cares? She still didnít sell.
Brian is exempt, and Marshawn and Rebecca did well, so the three of them get to go back to the suite. Josh, Jen, James, and Mark will all come back to the Boardroom.
Bill says that as PM, the loss is Joshís fault. Carolyn notes that only three people did any selling and she canít pick a person to fire. Jen, James, Josh, and Mark return to the Boardroom. Josh says that Jen is weak, but Jen says that they lost because Josh didnít follow through with the original concept. James agrees. He says the loss isnít all Jenís fault and Josh should be fired. Mark says that Jen is responsible for the lack of sales. Jen is mad now and is approaching Chris-like levels of aggravation. Josh asks if she worked on the people in line for the batting cage. Jen says that she did, but people werenít ready to buy at that point. Josh notes that they had a 15 minute wait.
Bill asks what Josh did wrong. Josh was that as PM, he has to take responsibility, but he did help everyone. Bill thinks that Mark took the easy way out by staying behind the cage. He adds that Jen needs to stop blaming others. If things werenít working, she should have changed things up. Josh was the quarterback for the team, but he couldnít deliver.
Trump asks Jen why she was unable to sell. Jen argues that she did. Hey, Jen? YOU DIDNíT. SHUT UP. Jen says that Josh let things turn into something else. Carolyn asks if the team knows why Capital Edge won. Itís because they all sold. Trump adds that this means there were seven salespeople on one team. Josh says that they had six, but Trump notes that Mark didnít sell anything. Jen still blames Josh. I want to pull her hair and make her cry. Bill says that there were a lot of people in the store, so they should have been able to sell. Carolyn says it was a circus.
Bill thinks that the team should have given the customers an incentive to buy - maybe let them use the batting cage if they purchased something. Josh agrees that, in hindsight, that would have been a good idea. Trump asks whose fault the cage was. Josh says it wasnít his idea, but Trump reminds him that he was the project manager. Jen asks why they didnít adapt. Josh says that Mark and James were responsible for the cage. James, who has been mostly quiet in the Boardroom, tells Josh that he said they needed to focus on sales.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
