Marketing-Led Post-COVID-19 Growth Strategies

Businesses are laying off workers, shutting their doors (some permanently), and struggling to react to the radical destruction that coronavirus (COVID-19) is doing to our society and communities. Most have already sustained massive damage, and we still have yet to see the scope of impact of the global pandemic that has upended the globe. Any return to normalcy may seem far-off, but sales and marketing are on the front lines of restarting the economy. When the dust settles, we have a responsibility to turn our shock and grief into fierce determination, and lead the charge of responsible, strategic, sustainable future growth. However, there’s no team better suited to lead that charge than the marketing department. Marketers are uniquely positioned to provide creative solutions to aid their organization in times of change and chart a course for navigating success.

Six Questions Leaders of Change Must Answer

Destination Innovation

Why do we need to change? We have already had so much change and now things are starting to go well so why rock the boat? People will not accept or support change unless they can see a very clear need. Leaders at all levels have to keep promoting the reasons for the change, the benefits of innovation and the dangers of complacency and resting our laurels. How are we going to change? What areas need change? We will just wait for the change to happen.

How To Create A Movement To Drive Transformation In Your Company Or Industry

Speaker: Greg Satell

Everybody has something they’d like to change, whether it is a problem in their organization, their industry, their community or society at large. But how can you get your ideas for change to take hold beyond a small circle of likeminded people? What you need is a cascade: small groups that are loosely connected but united by a common purpose. When they synchronize their collective behavior as networks, they become immensely powerful. A business model is disrupted, an industry is remade, the preceding order is no more and the world is transformed.

How Agile Approaches Change Project, Program, and Product Measures

Join Johanna as she discusses how agile approaches change what we measure, and possible measures you might use in projects, programs, and to assess the product as the team(s) build it.

Reframing Resistance to Change

Game-Changer

No standard behavior change, no innovation. True Innovation results in a step-change where we can’t imagine going back to the old way, but the road to that outcome is full of rejection. We amass stories of rejection like they’re badges of honor, encounter resistors even in places we believe we wouldn’t; resistance to change is fact of life. Still, we make mistakes in trying to make change. Logic is the enemy of change.
