PHASE 9: HIGH-PERFORMANCE PROGRAMS

Produce an Individual Development Plan for each member of the go-to-market team that will reinforce the necessary behaviors to achieve high-performance.

 

High-performance programs provide a plan for under-performers to correct course and meet expected standards. This leads to an increase in productivity for the organization. These same programs can also be designed to drive sustained performance from you’re A-Player talent. This leads to continued success in the market.
