Every Marketing organization today is expected to be performance-driven. What does performance-driven mean? It means that the Marketing organization at a minimum operates according to these parameters:

We have found that performance-driven Marketing organizations excel in these four areas:
1. Clear standards of performance and metrics tied to business results
2. Results are tracked and reported against performance standards (dashboards)
3. Analytics and models derived from data are used to drive continuous improvement and facilitate customer-centric decisions
4. Well-defined processes to support the work of Marketing and technology implementation

These four areas are the foundation for achieving Marketing Performance Management (MPM) and Measurement and the key to Operational Excellence. The MPM journey is not one to be taken lightly. Our research has found that Marketing organizations who make the journey earn high marks from the C-Suite for their ability to impact growth, create customer value, and prove Marketing’s contribution.

Other studies have found similar results, such as the CMO Council study which found that companies with a “formal & comprehensive” approach to Marketing Performance Management:
• Outperform companies entering consideration phase
• See improved performance ratings of 29%, 32% & 37% better in sales growth, market share & profitability respectively

We’ll tell it to you straight – it is an arduous undertaking. It’s finishing the journey that is often the most challenging. Which is why our customers have selected us as guides. With our expertise you can make solid headway on all four of the areas.
