Through our experience with the best brands in the world, we’ve found that the most successful organizations—and the most successful marketing leaders—treat work like a tier one asset. They understand that work impacts every aspect of the organization and is a primary driver of the digital experience. To help marketing leaders manage this critical work, we’ve identified seven distinct stages in the marketing work lifecycle and what work needs to happen in each stage. The more efficiently marketers can navigate the work in these stages, the more effective they can be overall.
In this guide, we provide a high-level overview of the seven stages of work: Strategy and Intake, Budget and Plan, Align and Create, Review and Approve, Store and Share, Deliver and Scale, and Measure and Optimize. We provide you with insights into how to better manage the work in these stages to ensure you’re prioritizing the work that matters most.
