Example:

A large Seattle based Software Company wanted to address differences between program level incentives
programs offered to partners in the US and the rest of the world. TokuSaku was hired to conduct and
document a prioritized gap analysis of US and worldwide incentive programs.

TokuSaku worked with US and worldwide channel incentive teams to document closure strategies for each
identified gap develop an initial, high-level impact assessment for each key element in the gap analysis and established a program alignment strategy for each. We then assisted with the development of a graphical timeline outlining the proposed alignment plan that could be incorporated into a Channel Incentive Governance Council (CIGC) proposal presentation.

As a solution, TokuSaku proposed a full migration of US channel incentive programs to the worldwide model for the upcoming fiscal year. Sought agreement that US team would be involved in updating the worldwide model to insure programs would provide full flexibility for the US to address key business opportunities.
