Marketing Alignment

Turn marketing critics into advocates

In the quest for marketing performance improvement and cost optimization, an important factor is often neglected: cross-functional marketing alignment with internal and external business partners.

Marketing leaders should focus more effort and investment on creating advocates within the company that help them protect and increase the marketing budget – either when establishing the annual budget or making budget adjustments in response to unplanned market factors.
