(Hi! You’ve reached a topic specifically for folks participating in the Program Manager Launch Certification. If you’re a Gong Program Manager and would like to learn more about getting certified, please click here!)

 

Hello Program Managers – welcome to the Gong Community! As we talked about back in the Academy, being Gong certified means that you’ll visit the Community regularly to connect with other Gong users, help answer questions about Gong, learn from each other, and share your own ideas and best practices. 

 

Another awesome aspect about the Community is that it connects you and other Gong customers directly with Gongsters (i.e., the folks who work at Gong). We pop in all the time to share news, answer questions, provide tips and tricks, and participate in the conversations our customers are having.  

 

To that end, your first assignment for your Launch Certification is to answer at least one of the following questions:

  1. What is at least one thing you want to learn during the Program Manager Launch Certification? 

  2. What is your goal in becoming Launch Certified?

  3. What is one take away you’re hoping to gain from the Program Manager Launch Certification?

 

(If you want to answer more than one, that’s okay—feel free to share as much as you’d like!)

 

Congrats on tackling the first of your Community assignments! Feel free to pop back over to the Gong Academy when you’re finished to keep learning. :)

I want to make sure that our team is FINALLY able to utilize Gong to its full potential. My goal with going through the Launch Certification process is to decrease the potential for adoption resistance from reps and increase the knowledge and confidence from our leadership team. 

During the Program Manager Certification for Gong I would like to learn how the tool works from end to end correctly, what’s needed to run it successfully, best practices, and how the users can use it effectively, increasing their productivity.

During the Program Manager Launch Certification, I’d love to learn how best to engage our team - across our many teams.  We’ll be using Gong in several different capacities, and in order to be the best resource for our internal teams, I’ll need to have a sound understanding of all Gong has to offer. 

My goal in becoming certified is to better understand the platform and best practices/workflows so I can enable my sellers and sales leaders to leverage Gong to its fullest capacity.

There are many factors and business units to account for when setting up a new addition to a company’s tech stack and as a Gong advocate for over 5 years and having setup Gong as RevOps in 2 orgs across 8 regions, this is a no brainer. This certification is to add to my portfolio of skill sets and continue to be Gongs advocate in my company to utilize Gong to its fullest to support key across CS, Marketing, Sales, Enablement, Product, etc .

What is my goal in becoming Launch Certified?

  • Gong is an incredible tool, I’ve been using it for years. Over time, I think I’d like to see myself in a Director of CS Strategy & Operations role, so Gong is one of the elements of that tech stack that I want to learn more deeply about, so I can have a better understanding of both the technical tactics and strategy that goes into orchestrating across Gong, Gainsight (working on admin cert in parallel), Sales Navigator, CRM, etc to improve efficiency and use data to make business decisions & recommendations. 

Q.What is at least one thing you want to learn during the Program Manager Launch Certification?

  1. Gong is such a robust tool that I feel it can help me create a very well structured process on defining the ideal template for client interaction. I wish to learn and identify the right mix of metrics that might help me monitor the quality of client engagement calls and set the right bench marking standards for coaching purposes.

I want to understand Gong’s capabilities so our team can start seeing the value and insight as soon as possible. Gong has a lot of resources, and this certification will give me the path to learn everything from  implementation to analytics in a efficient and effective manner.

What is one take away you’re hoping to gain from the Program Manager Launch Certification?

As a newbie in the world of Product Marketing, I would like to be able to understand how I can utilize Gong to assist with our go-to-market strategy. I’d love to hone in on those ‘reasons lost’, find any trends and optimize our product as well as the way we pitch it. 

What is your goal in becoming Launch Certified?
I am new to my organization in a sales enablement. I want to fully educate myself on Gong and its functionality so my sales org can take full advantage of everything it has to offer. From my initial observation, the team may be under utilizing it but I also think it will be a key tool as I develop Seller onboarding. 

My goal is to quickly position the value of Gong from a place of technical understanding. I’d like to be able to effectively demo the product and it’s capabilities while also understanding how Gong functions in the tech stack. With a deeper understanding of Gong’s capabilities, I’ll be able to better articulate how Gong can accelerate key initiatives for our customers. 

I’m very excited in becoming Launch Certified so that I can have the knowledge of best practices for different use cases and business objectives using Gong in order to add value to my team.

My goal in getting certified is to help ensure that we have a successful rollout and launch of Gong across our revenue organization. I’m excited to see how we can improve our sales results from adopting this tool.  

I hope to take away becoming a subject matter expertise in all things GONG so that I can share my knowledge with the company to increase win rates and gain valuable insights from conversations with our customers. I am looking to learn best practises to increase my company’s ROI. I am very excited for this journey!

I hope to be able to properly support the sales team in taking advantage of all the functionality that GONG has to offer and set them up for success.  My goal in becoming Launch certified is to gain a better understanding of all the features, functionalities, and integrations available within Gong, so I can better assist in optimizing the tool, as well as improve education/training for users, better enable managers and coaches, and ultimately increase efficiency and performance for our sales team!
