  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Another brand manager told me that many agencies are creating social spin-offs but they still operate like traditional ad agencies
  •  3. Continuity has become more important than campaigns. There’s a key difference between funding an ad campaign and supporting a social media effort.
  • 4. Companies no longer want to outsource customer relationships.

  • “Agency employees are stretched thin, and their ideas are too. It’s harder to invest in a brand and do a bang up, non-cookie-cutter job for a client when you have 12 other brands on your time sheet. Moving to the client side allows for more opportunity to really invest in one brand and watch it grow.”

An Introduction to Scrumban for Agile Marketing - 0 views

  • Scrumban was designed for more mature agile teams, those working in an unpredictable environment where plans and requirements constantly shift, and/or teams who are supporting existing products rather than creating new ones.

  • In a nutshell, Scrumban is driven by events and demand rather than a pre-established schedule. It focuses on minimal planning, providing just enough of a backlog to give the team enough important work to do next.
  • Scrumban also ignores the focus on egalitarian, cross-functional teams that Scrum emphasizes. Instead, it embraces specialized roles within the team (a more realistic way to handle marketing skill sets).
  • ...6 more annotations...
  • Individual WIP limits govern the workload for each team member as well as for the team as a whole. This is vitally important, because it protects your team’s sanity as well as the quality of its work:
  • you don’t spend hours planning or estimating task size every other week just because it’s time to do that. Instead you only plan projects when your team reaches the pre-determined minimum threshold of new projects on their list.
  • In Scrumban you don’t have timeboxed iterations as you do with Scrum, so you need strict limits on how much work can be in each category (planning/doing/testing/promoting/etc.) to keep your teams from becoming overworked or scattered.

  • Kaizen basically means continuous improvement or change for the better, and on agile teams it should be a major focus.
  • Team members should be able to “call a Kaizen” anytime they feel that the process is breaking down, and you can also schedule them to occur when particular conditions are met.
  • here’s how Scrum is beginning to break down for our marketing team.

Why it's time to turn back the clock on Baby Boomers | Campaign US - 0 views

  • unlike their predecessors, today’s 50-plus consumers wield unprecedented buying power and influence. As a result, they expect the same level of attention from advertisers and marketers that they grew accustomed to in their youth.
  • As a consumer segment, Baby Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) should be a marketer's dream. As the largest U.S. demographic, they own 77% of discretionary wealth, represent 25% of the consumer landscape and account for 60% of consumer spending.
  • less than 5% of ad dollars are actually being targeted to Boomers. That’s right — the people who control 60% of consumer spending represent only 5% of marketing investment.
