Low to negative channel performance based on trial and error approach to channel program development. You cannot afford costly mistakes at this stage and require effective strategies and tactics to quickly evolve to your next level of maturity.

Fire Fighting

Low channel performance, few controls and lack of effective forward planning, lack of alignment in program incentive/comp plan, recruitment and enablement strategy, but beginning to develop an understanding of profit drivers. You've advanced, but are still operationally unstable, hampering your ability to scale.


Median financial performance with basic channel growth controls and some forward budget planning, but lacking meaningful program performance tracking and alignment between program incentive/comp plan and budget attainment, impeding rapid channel revenue growth.


High financial and partner channel growth with effective program and partner performance tracking paired with strong alignment between program incentive/comp plan and budget attainment. Your focus should now shift from partner acquisition towards partner enablement.


Highest financial and partner channel growth performance tied to closely aligned program incentive/comp plan, effective channel partner recruitment strategy and robust channel partner enablement programs. Your attention is now directed to new product and service development, acquisition or sale.
