Transform Your Learning Management System for Sales

If you work in sales enablement or corporate learning, you’re here because you need a new approach. Mindtickle’s Sales Readiness Platform provides all the same features of a learning management system (LMS) for sales, but with purpose-built features designed to engage sellers and showcase improvements to their performance.

Sellers are unique learners: they require more than a corporate LMS

According to Gartner, B2B sales reps forget 70% of the information they learn within a week of training, and 87% will forget it within a month. Sellers must be treated differently as learners.

Attention Spans

Sellers have shorter attention spans and knowledge retention than other employees. They need continuous learning and reinforcement to keep up with buyers and their needs.

Market Factors

The market, not the company, dictates a seller’s behavior. Factors change in their world so quickly, and it’s hard to keep up with all the training they need. In some industries, sellers may also need to quickly change behavior or understand a shifting landscape due to regulatory changes.

Inherent Priorities

Sales people prioritize differently. Due to the nature of their work, they will inherently prioritize closing business over engaging in training programs.

Right now, we have to be very adaptable to things that are changing. The way people learn is very different. There is still this propensity to make a PowerPoint but that just doesn’t work for training anymore.

Why companies are moving from learning management systems for sales to a sales readiness platform

A traditional LMS is focused on predictable, static content, but sellers need a sales enablement platform that allows them to keep up with dynamic, ever-changing selling conditions.

Key aspects of training and enablement

The curriculum, topics, and content that sellers need to be enabled on is dynamic, with the day-to-day role of a seller much more prone to external factors beyond the predictable curriculum the LMS is built for.

Curriculum

Sellers need to focus on a mix of both internal & external training — from internal process and compliance training, to training on market updates, soft skills, and sales methodologies. While LMS functionality predominantly focuses on internal training, external training requires a different approach, including reinforcement and hands-on practice.

Focus

The cadence for company-wide training delivered by an LMS is largely scheduled, from yearly privacy updates, to workplace safety reminders. Since selling conditions are always changing, sellers need a platform that enables them just in time, on an ongoing basis.

Cadence

Since the LMS is largely designed for company-wide training, which has a scheduled cadence and predictable curriculum, learning time is typically more dedicated. Sellers, on the other hand, are more often on-the-go with schedules at the mercy of customers and prospects. The time they have for learning is fragmented, which requires flexible learning that LMSs just aren’t built for.

Learning time

Sellers need individualized learning to elevate their skillset and make them effective in the field. Factors like years of experience selling or in the industry have an impact on what they need to learn, making individualized learning paths a key element to success that the LMS is not able to provide.

Audience needs
