Like many marketing departments, Cprime’s team had limited transparency into the rest of the company. This created accountability issues, a disorganized backlog, and strained relationships with internal stakeholders, including product management and sales. There were many instances when the sales or product management team would request tasks to be completed by the Marketing team, but had no idea when or if they would be completed. Tasks lost in long email chains, or details forgotten over water cooler conversations became problems.
In this agile marketing case study, learn how the team used a spreadsheet to keep track of requests and campaign ideas, but it was a free-for-all of what was getting done and when. This caused not only a lack of trust from outside stakeholders, but also internally within the department because there was no way to keep members accountable for their projects.
Due to the distrust, lack of organization, and poor use of time, there were no established methods to measure the success or failure of campaigns. It would take weeks, or even months, to execute a full campaign, which resulted in wasted time, dollars, and effort.
In this Agile Marketing case study, we take a deep dive into the solution and results.
The solution started with three internal change agents, the Vice President of Marketing, the Marketing Manager, and a Marketing Specialist attended the two-day Agile Marketing Boot Camp. They were able to implement what they learned from the boot camp immediately into their everyday work routine before they even left the classroom.
Ceremonies and artifacts were the first Agile methods implemented. The team started conducting daily stand-ups and weekly planning meetings with Planning Poker. The creation of a team velocity chart, a formal backlog, a running Kanban board, and a digital marketing request system allowed the team to organize and prioritize projects. It also helped them break down and iterate complex campaigns to gather real-time data before releasing the projects to customers.
Marketing departments operate very differently from one another, so Cprime Learning’s Agile Marketing Boot Camp is intended to give teams a foundation in Agile Marketing methods in order to help them create their own “flavor” of Agile Marketing that works best for their teams.
