High Performance Channel Management
This specially designed program focuses on helping Channel Managers resolve some of the most challenging issues related to channel management through provision of the “Four Pillars of Channel Management”™:
Description of the Four Pillars of Channel Management
1. Territory Portfolio Optimization: Channel Managers learn how to quickly and consistently assess new and existing partners using a common “Partner Rating System”. They will analyze existing and new partners, and conduct a GAP Analysis based on key metrics, to quickly react to risk in their channel plans.
2. Partner Engagement and Recruiting: Channel Managers learn how to target and qualify the right new partners, as well as determine the best existing partners to focus on. They will also learn how to utilize a Value Proposition to convince the best partners to join or, for existing partners, to make commitments that will result in greater success.
3. Partner Management: Channel Managers will learn how to gain commitment from Partner executives regarding specific goals, strategies and activities designed to drive revenue. They will learn management techniques to keep partner owners and executives on a successful track, and how to identify partners falling off track.
4. Tactical Field Management: Channel Managers are shown how to most effectively engage and leverage the direct sales team. Channel Executives will learn a proven methodology to assess a Channel Manager’s skills. They are provided with proactive, measurable development plans to improve those skills.
