Bridge Your Marketing Operations Gap

The operations gap has many names: waste, inefficiency, the marketing black hole. They all mean the underlying system is broken.

As audience expectations rise and channels proliferate, marketing must evolve to keep pace. Agile saved software development at the start of the twenty-first century, and it offers a way forward for marketers too -- if we approach it the right way.

Don’t Just Be Fast. Be Agile.

Marketers already respond in near real time to internal requests and external data; fast we can do. What we need is the ability to focus on doing the right work at the right time so we can deliver value early and often, proving the impact of marketing work on the bottom line.

Without focus we’ll remain stuck on the marketing hamster wheel, churning out work but never reaching our goals. CMOs will come and go, with little to show for their tenure. We’ll move fast, but we won’t get anywhere.

Adapt Agility for Marketing

Most marketers intuitively understand the need for adaptability and speed. But many of us fall victim to a copy-paste mentality and try to replicate Agile ways of working from software. Marketing isn’t like developing software; we need our own version of agility.

When we take the time to build this customized framework, we:

  • Increase efficiency
  • Reduce rework
  • Deliver customer value in weeks, not months
  • Prove the impact of our work
  • Achieve results without bigger budgets
