Excellence in Training Awards recognized SAP's Pre-Sales training
program, developed by Corporate Visions, with the Gold award
for the "Best Results of a Learning Program" category for 2019.
The Create Value Program was a customized learning
experience developed and delivered by Corporate Visions for
pre-sales employees in SAP's Human Resources line of business. The
learning objective was to help them provide a consistent and proven
approach for demonstrating value to prospects and customers in
early stage customer conversations.
Pre-sales employees participated in a multi-component program
including pre-work, live workshop, reinforcement activities, and
continued manager coaching. SAP was able to track and demonstrate a
significant improvement by participants in pipeline growth, revenue
growth and accounts won following the training.
"The whole day was amazing. The best training in years," said
one training participant. "I loved how the teacher told stories in
a memorable and easy to understand way, which also helped us relate
to the class content." According to a post-event survey, 97 percent
of participants from the pre-sales team are confident they will
close more business as a result. And 96 percent felt the training
had an immediate positive impact on their performance.

implement comprehensive programs, and diligently measure the
resulting impact on actual business outcomes," said Erik Peterson, chief executive officer at
Corporate Visions. "This is the only result that really matters
when you are trying to inspire sales behavior change."
