"Compensation for Managed Services Sales"
Presented by George Humphrey, Senior Director of Research, TSIAAssembling a sales model for managed services (MS) with the proper resources is challenging enough, but once you build the right sales organization structure, how do you pay them? Historically, there has been a vacuum of objective, fact-based data on this topic. As a result, TSIA recently completed a study on managed services sales compensation, a first of its kind in the industry. In this 30-minute session, George will share a summary of the findings from the MS sales compensation study and answer questions that many MS and sales executives struggle with when considering compensation models for the sale of managed services.
