Partner Technical Enablement Playbook


Tim Tetrick

Hello Microsoft Partners,

Wanted to share with you what I hope will be a great resource for you and your teams.  The Technical Enablement Playbook was created with the idea of developing a “playbook” of the common “partner technical enablement” best practices that my TS2 colleagues and I guide our partners through every day in our one-on-one meetings.  The idea was to document those tools, programs, sites, and offerings, into one easy guide that could easily be scaled out to partners everywhere.

Here are some of the topics that are covered in the document…

  • Partner Training
  • Internal Use Rights (IUR)
  • Signature Cloud Support
  • Technical Presales and Deployment Services
  • Cloud Performance Competencies and Action Pack
  • Partner Center
  • Microsoft Customer Immersion Experience (CIE)
  • FastTrack
  • TS2 Blog
  • Cloud Trust Centers
  • Why Microsoft (Compete)
  • Office 365 Service Descriptions
  • Office 365 and Cloud Platform Public Roadmaps
  • Office 365 Things You Need to Know Blog Series
  • Office 365 Migration and Deployment
  • Office 365 Plan Selector Tool
  • Azure Solution Accelerators
  • Azure in 5 Minutes
  • Azure Pricing Tools
  • Windows Server 2003 & SQL Server 2005 End of Support Resources
  • Leading Your Customers to Modern IT with Windows Server 2012 R2 Blog Series

The latest version of the Technical Enablement Playbook can be found at Partner Technical Enablement Playbook (Updated!)

I would encourage you to check back to this site from time to time as my plan is to periodically post new versions with updates and new content.

I hope this is helpful and happy selling!
