In 2009 I built the internal Sales Enablement practice at Forrester Research, while Forrester built a Client-facing research practice. We positioned the value of Sales Enablement as a way of maximizing the return on the cost of sales and marketing. Armed with a simple model and a large ‘cost of sales’ number, we were looking to justify an increase in our Sales Enablement budget. Our key metric was a long-term lagging indicator: annual ‘cost reduction’ versus ‘growth improvement. This approach failed to resonate with sales because it needed to see more immediate impact like connection to quarterly quota achievement or increased leads in the sales pipeline. What’s ...

Contributed by Christopher Kingman Spring Cleaning! A time to declutter, minimize, and reorganize. Much like at home, I make a point to “clean house” and reorganize my Enablement priorities to make sure I am aligned with what my business needs so I can continue to scale my team’s efforts to match. Even more relevant in our digital world, maintaining an understanding of the current business objectives and challenges your sellers face is critical. How you or your team will address them is the differentiator between Enablement success and failure. So how do you do it? I have come to leverage an easy-to-implement strategy for the majority of my Enablement career ...
