Capability Building: Marketing Organization and Capacity Building
Effective teams develop better strategies. Today the average tenure of a business unit leader in marketing has dropped to 18 months. In such a highly dynamic organizational environment, the approach to management tends to focus on quick wins instead of durable long term growth strategies.
Leading companies recognize the importance of capacity building and bench strength in managing talent. Reinventing organizational practices for both for profit and nonprofit organizations with proven strategies can dramatically improve the ROI of marketing spending.

A critical component of productive teams is the development and implementation of effective marketing processes.
