The ANA Growth Agenda





The ANA and Cannes Lions established the CMO Growth Council, which has identified four global growth priorities to drive business through marketing, to enable marketers to organize, collaborate, and effectively tackle the growth challenges they face today and in the future.

These priorities (described below) directly influence the 12 focus areas that comprise the ANA Growth Agenda — engineered to lead the industry in creating a stronger, more sustainable economic future for all brands and the people they serve.

Brand Experience, Creativity, and Media

The craft of marketing and its connection to innovative experiences and media represents the centerpiece for potential growth. By improving their effectiveness through innovation, staying true to a brand's purpose, and shifting to a "Brands for Humans" mindset, marketers will build the foundation for long-term business growth and brand value.

Data, Technology, and Measurement

Among the most important initiatives of the CMO Growth Council are those centered on data, technology, and measurement — the engines that will lead marketers into the future. And yet, this is an area where marketing leaders may not be well-versed. Working together as an industry, we will harness the power and promise of data and technology to attain peak performance.

Talent and Marketing Organization

Continued growth can only be sustained by talent that is increasingly capable, highly skilled, and diverse. Attracting and developing this talent requires an end-to-end, systematic approach that starts at the academic level, progresses through the current marketing organization, and culminates at the senior leadership ranks.

Society and Sustainability

Brands must be both a force for good and a force for growth. This means not only using marketing to drive growth and value but also to promote equality and inclusion. Foundational to this success are solutions that leverage increasingly sophisticated measurement systems, partnerships with primary media and platforms, and clear accountability for brand safety and reduced ad fraud.
