Agile Marketing Principles: For more effective go-to-market outcomes
In this episode Mike Smart of Egress Solutions interviews Jim Ewel, Trainer, Coach, Author of The Six Disciplines of Agile Marketing and Co-Founder of the Agile Marketing Alliance. Jim Ewel shares insights from his most recent book "The Six Disciplines of Agile Marketing" on how to improve employee engagement, customer success and business outcomes through embracing the practices of business agility. As one of the leading voices on Agile Marketing Jim outlines a path to greater marketing effectiveness and improved business results. Jim’s insight is based on decades of executive experience and consulting engagements with many of the most successful global technology firms. His key to successful business agility is based primarily on a shift in mindset for the marketing organization as well as the front line professionals and their stakeholders.
According to Jim, CEO’s and other executives should avoid “cheerleading” agile initiative and resist the urge to make too many decisions; instead their role is to provide the resources, provide the leadership, get obstacles out of the way.
