GTDC Distribution Industry Training

Successful business partnerships depend on many factors. In technology distribution, knowing the best practices, key drivers and dynamics relative to your role makes a profound difference.

This GTDC Training Program is the answer, with specific curriculum paths for both vendors and distributors:

• The vendor track is ideal for account managers, product managers and program managers
• We recommend the distributor track for sales, product managers and solution category managers

Two levels are available for both tracks in conjunction with a full range of high-value education courses, led by experienced distribution industry analysts and practitioners who expertly help participants grow with their respective companies and distribution partners.

Advancing/Optimizing Your Results — and Partnerships

Fundamentals of Distribution addresses fundamental technology distribution business success factors. The content applies specifically to anyone with limited prior experience in distribution or those seeking a better foundation in how corresponding business models work.

Advanced Distribution Business Training represents a deeper level of knowledge and skills, primarily for roles more directly interfacing in distribution business — “owning relationships,” for example, whether from the vendor or distribution perspective. This training focuses on maximizing the value of partnerships. Practical experience combines with a solid understanding of the financial dynamics of the vendor business model inside distributors.

Help your teams gain industry-recognized distribution business knowledge and skills…the ideal path to greater success.
