Marketing Operations 2.0: Tactical Discipline to Strategic Vision


Marketing can be the growth driver, the voice of the customer, and the agent of change in organizations. However, the sad reality is that today's Chief Marketing Officer has an average tenure of just over 26 months, less than half the time of the average CEO. This brief tenure has motivated many marketing leaders to take a short-term and tactical orientation, which has led to marketing having limited scope and influence within many organizations. The inability of marketing to demonstrate its long-term value has, in turn, led to slashed budgets and head-count.
