Crossing the Chasm between Marketing & Sales
When marketing builds a strategy that captures customer value, sales enablement can build a complementary deployment and adoption strategy that will most effectively amplify the marketing plan.
Our speakers have successfully built a go-to-market plan with Chasm philosophy and seamlessly hand-off to sales for adoption. They will discuss how the chasm framework lends itself to a sales enablement. And, they will cover how using a selling framework such as Challenger, Miller-Heimen, or Force Management can be leveraged to build market messaging into playbooks.
