FREE eBook! Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Training Your Channel--and More!
Devising and delivering the right training strategy is not an easy task. The training curriculum you offer to your distribution channel can vary significantly depending upon your channel’s characteristics and your own capabilities to deliver that training.
Chances are your distribution channel is composed of independent businesses. They do not work for you or your company. This is of great benefit to you for a lot of reasons, but it also presents some challenges.
When it comes to training, one of those challenges is knowing— and agreeing to—who is responsible (you or your channel partner) for which parts of the training program, and how it will be delivered and managed.
In this eBook I’ll give you the keys to successful training and certification in the distribution channel, from strategy to tactics to operational action items. If you follow them, your dealers and distributors will be very engaged and you will have created the highest performing field force in your industry.
Over the past 30 years I’ve been at the forefront of channel training and development. I’ve created and managed enterprise programs for General Motors, Ford, Caterpillar, Daimler, John Deere, Prudential, Target, 3M, and Cargill, as well as many franchise operations. What I’ve learned I will share with you here in this eBook so you, too, can field the highest performing work force in your industry.
