Adaptation & Transformation

Unbiased expert advice to help you meet rising pressures to change.

Challenges

Marketing leaders are under pressure to make big changes and modernize on multiple levels. This pressure brings significant challenges:

  1. Transformation is the dominant label for this work, but the word is problematic. It implies a big expensive initiative with a clear end date, when the real goal should be to continually and purposefully adapt as the environment changes. 
  2. The term “transformation” also implies dramatic, holistic change. But the right path is probably incremental and driven by strategic opportunities vs. generalized best practices.
  3. The canvas for change is very broad, spanning technology, business models, strategy and operations. This makes it difficult to formulate and execute a practical, realistic plan across multiple teams and silos.

  4. In particular, some leaders struggle to know where to start. The truth is, where you start matters less than the fact that you’ve started.

  5. Shiny new technology can pull your attention away from what matters most: keeping pace with your customers.

  6. Many vendors that offer help with transformation initiatives do so hoping to sell further products or services down the road, which creates biases that can pull your agenda off course.
