GTM Consulting and Interim Management

A highly trained and experienced professional can have a high impact, assessing the current situation, contrasting the strategic objectives the company wants to achieve, and tracing and executing a strategy that leads there.

Isn’t that a Consultant?

Consultants are very similar, all the way up to tracing a strategy, but their involvement is usually minimal after that. Consultants rarely take the time to learn the nuances of their client’s business and they almost never get involved with the actual execution of the strategy they themselves traced.

In contrast, Interim Management, takes charge, imbibes themselves with the company’s business model, and once the Strategy is laid out, they execute to completion. Even their compensation can be partially tied to results.

Channel Strategy Design

Partner Programs look pretty much alike for the untrained eye, and while just copying a competitor’s program is an option, it is extremely important that your company’s program is fully tailored to your products, solutions, and services; and with the End Customers you are trying to reach always in mind.

Each component of your Partner Program must exist to incentivize a particular behavior. There is no use for any policy that is not aligned with this idea.

I have spent hundreds of hours interfacing with peers in your industry, as well as in developing program strategies myself. Let me help you design -and implement- a Partner Program that supports your ultimate goals with a good use of resources.

Offload the initial work of designing and implementing a thoughtful Partner Program to us, and take over and manage it afterwards.
