The next was to define what kind of partners they had and understand where they wanted to go with the program.
Eric outlines the necessary steps to building a mature partner program and goes on to discuss the importance of a management operating rhythm. He explains how to identify inefficiencies and why it’s important to have rules of engagement. He also expands upon why it’s critical to regularly update processes and procedures.
Finally, Eric talks about leveraging your influence and creating a culture of celebration to get people excited about working with you.
