Sales technology analyst Nancy Nardin, in a unique position to understand and clear the technical fog of sales enablement in this interview with Brian Williams.
Williams asks, "We’re in the middle of a massive hype cycle when it comes to enablement technology. How can sales leaders make sense of today’s technology landscape? How can teams get focused on driving lasting sales productivity with the help of technology?" Brevet partner Brian Williams explores the issues and more with sales technology analyst Nancy Nardin. Nardin discusses:
- There are two types of sales enablement
- Why marketing and sales management seem to have an unjustified inferiority complex about sales enablement
- She says, "Don't start with the technology"
- If sales enablement is your goal, start with a capability gaps analysis not tech

About Sales Enablement Radio
On Sales Enablement Radio we talk with CEOs and authors, Chief Sales Officers, Chief Marketing Officers, Vice Presidents of Sales Enablement and Sales Operations, as well as salespeople about sales enablement.
We started Sales Enablement Radio because sales enablement is a contested, hot topic for companies struggling with the new reality of selling in the B2B space. Marketing and sales departments are confronted with pressure to work as a team, while using new software guided by artificial intelligence, while contending with prospects that demand more information with less personal contact before making a purchase. This program will bring clarity to a topic that seems to mean different things to marketing, sales, and C level managers.
