Sales Enablement, Operations & SalesTech Essentials

6-week course curriculum


Module 1: The Evolution of Sales Enablement

Welcome to the Essentials of Sales Enablement course – the first steps towards a world-class sales function. We kick off the course by defining the sales enablement concept and exploring the growth of the function over recent years.

  • Definition of Sales Enablement
  • The History & Evolution of Sales Enablement
  • The Sales Enablement Ecosystem
  • Sales Enablement versus Sales Operations

Module 2: Planning – Strategy, Markets, Customers And Competitors

One size does not fit all. Where one organisation sits on its sales enablement journey will differ greatly from another. Much of that is driven by your organisation, your clients, and the competitors in your sector. Only by having a deep understanding of your clients and their buying behaviours can you start to develop a best-in-class sales enablement strategy. This module looks at best practice in identifying your ideal customers and the key stages that take them through the buying process – setting the foundations for outstanding sales enablement.

  • Understanding Your Customer
  • Understanding Sales Methodologies and the Sales Process
  • Developing your Ideal Customer Profile and Buyer Personas
  • Customer Buyer Journeys
  • Aligning your B2B Sales Process to the Buyer’s Journey
  • Competitor Analysis
  • Sales Enablement Maturity & Goal Alignment
  • Marrying Maturity to Goals, Initiatives and Measurability

Module 3: Process – Content, Messaging, Operations & Data

Now that you have a complete understanding of your customers, their buying journeys and your own sales process, we can start to introduce buyer-centric messaging and content. It’s all about delivering the right content, at the right time, in the right format.  

  • Content Strategy
  • Content for the Buyer Journey
  • Social Selling
  • Demand Generation, Coverage and Conversion
  • Campaign Operations and Governance
  • Data & Analytics
  • Sales Enablement Metrics & Measurability
  • Building Sales Enablement Reporting and Dashboards

Module 4: Platforms, Apps & Ecosystems

SalesTech or a Sales Enablement technology stack is a surefire way to optimise sales performance. The right SalesTech stack will save you valuable resources and improve performance at every stage of the buyer journey and achieve your goals. The right tech stack is the difference between average-performing teams and exceptionally-performing teams. If you don’t have a strong technical capability, you’re putting your sales enablement at a distinct disadvantage. This module explores both the technology available today and best-practice in stack integration.  

  • The Essential Tools in Sales Enablement
  • Sales Stack Gap Analysis
  • Sales Stack Design and Development
  • Select Tech the Right Way
  • System Stability & Performance

Module 5: People – Talent, Teams, Training & Coaching

Often considered the original pillar of sales enablement, training and coaching remains key to the sales enablement ecosystem. A talent strategy provides a holistic set of processes and practices that covers the entire lifecycle of a salesperson, from recruitment through exit. In this module, we explore how

coordinating hiring, assessment, training and coaching in a single, comprehensive strategy can ensure you have the right people in the right jobs, achieving amazing results.

  • Sales Enablement Roles, Responsibilities and Leadership
  • Building Powerful Sales Teams
  • Building Your Sales Training Program
  • B2B Sales Training Techniques
  • The Sales Training Audit
  • Recruitment and Onboarding

Module 6: Pioneer & Pilot – Future Proof Your Sales Enablement

Our Pioneering module is all about looking to the future. And no matter what industry you’re in, the future is very much digital. In an increasingly digital world, the ability to conduct business virtually is a necessity - across your organisations and individual functions. Sales enablement is no exception.

  • Sales Enablement in a Digital World
  • The Future of Sales Enablement

Module 7: The Essentials of Sales Enablement Wrap-Up

With customer behaviours changing, competitors entering your space, and continuous digital innovation, you need to keep pace with change. This module provides a summary of the course, but also provides suggestions on how you can ‘keep upgrading’.

  • Sales Enablement in a Digital World
  • The Future of Sales Enablement
