The greatest innovations and new products will fail if your sales force doesn’t understand them, embrace them, and sell them.
In this session, you will learn the results of a comprehensive study conducted with the University of Northern Colorado that asked questions such as:
- · How do B-to-B salespeople prefer to learn?
- · How should content be structured and delivered?
- · What are the best ways to engage salespeople and motivate them to learn?
- · What training methods yield the best results?
- · What are practical ways to make training “sales friendly?”
Specifically, the study identifies the most effective training design and delivery methods for instructional designers, product leaders, subject matter experts, and others responsible for training salespeople about new—and existing—offerings. Ultimately, by improving the product training process, salespeople will sell new offerings faster and more efficiently, and the risk of failed product launches will be greatly reduced.
