What's Your Current Channel Maturity Level?
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.
Stable: 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.
Proactive: 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.
Zen: 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.
