Let's continue the great momentum from FY10 as we roll into FY11. I know many partners are excited after attending one of the biggest Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference events ever! Remember you can find a ton of content, including keynotes, on the Digital WPC website. This is also the time to get connected to some of our key initiatives.

The Growth Acceleration Program (GAP) is a structured, co-invested program intended to increase the customer add productivity of our U.S. Microsoft Dynamics GP partners that focus on selling to customers in the Business in a Box (BIB) scenario.

United States Microsoft Dynamics partners who participate in the GAP will focus on:

  • Optimizing the organizational structure for productivity
  • Creating volume oriented, ROI driven marketing activity
  • Increasing sales capacity with rapid time to value for new reps
  • Optimizing consulting utilization through consistent deployment methodologies and readiness

GAP Leverages the three pillars of the FY11+ Microsoft Dynamics Partner Strategy, including engagement, marketing and readiness.

If you are interested in learning more about the GAP opportunity—including the investment and eligibility criteria—please contact Tera Long (tlong@microsoft.com) Pam Johnson (pamelajo@microsoft.com) between July 15 and July 31. Space is limited to 15 Microsoft Dynamics partners in FY11.
