Four Practices to Propel Your

High-Performance Marketing Journey

“We wanted a firm that could combine training and structure, tools, techniques and frameworks – someone with a proven track record.” – Elsevier

You are here, and we are delighted you share our passion for Marketing excellence!

As experts with decades of experience and research behind us, we have found that customer and market-centric companies recognize the importance of upstream Marketing to accelerate growth, create customer value and improve performance.

We built our business around four best practices employed by Best-in-Class organizations that enable our customers to achieve:

  1. Alignment. Alignment around strategy, positioning, performance management, and planning are often the missing links between the work of Marketing and the value of Marketing.
  2. Accountability. Accountability which encompasses the metrics you chose and the dashboards you use for performance measurement is the difference between measuring the stuff of Marketing and proving Marketing’s contribution and impact.
  3. Data-Derived Decisions. Making solid customer-centric business decisions today takes employing analytics to derive customer, product, and market insights, develop segmentation and customer models.
  4. Operational Excellence. The key to enhancing productivity, effectiveness, and efficiency rests on moving from managing activity to focusing on the right process and skills.

These four practices are the foundation for improving and proving the value of Marketing.

Helping you succeed with these initiatives is our purpose and our passion.

Our customers find these four practices help them successfully address:

  • Positioning and differentiation, which is so critical to opportunity development
  • Aligning sales and marketing to improve opportunity development and management
  • Defining new products/service strategies and market segments designed to attract, retain, and grow the value of customers
  • Developing marketing metrics to measure effectiveness, efficiency, and value
  • Aligning marketing with key business goals and developing metrics that will demonstrate marketing’s impact on these goals
  • Creating marketing dashboards to report on marketing performance
  • Defining and engineering data, measurement, and reporting processes
