  37. 37.  Get senior executive buy-in.Your ABE team will need their understanding and protection.  Position the program as a new, collaborative and ongoing approach to acquire and expand big accounts, not as ‘the next big marketing campaign’.  Make sure the account execs, SDRs and marketers are 100% committed to this strategy. Anything less is a recipe for friction.  Target account list defined  Don’t just agree on the accounts to target, agree on the criteria for choosing accounts and the governance about when to add or remove accounts.  Agree on the fraction of all resources that will go to your ABM accounts, perhaps starting with a pilot program.  Lead-to-account mapping inside the CRM  Agree on short- medium- and long-term metrics that everyone will track together. And agree on the metrics that don’t matter. Document this.  Account engagement tracking in place 37 Checklist
