Slow decision-making leads to lost sales and reduced marketing return on investment. The root cause of slow decision-making is the lack of data driven insight. The goal of this workshop is to show you (and your team) how to operate like a fast-growing startup by applying agile marketing principles that will empower your marketers to iterate fast and drive positive business results. Led by a growth mentor from the Techstars startup accelerator program, this workshop guides you through the agile marketing process, from understanding the right Key Performance Indicators (“KPIs”) for your business model to implementing a rapid-iteration process that allows your team to operate with the speed and focus of a top performing startup.

Whether you’re an e-commerce company in the growth stage of your lifecycle or an established well known
B2B brand, this workshop will help you overcome any obstacles or processes that hinder your success; enabling you to speed change across your business unit or company. This workshop helps you to utilize a simple process and structure for implementing an “agile startup” mindset and process into your existing workflow. You’ll walk away from this workshop with the right tools and resources to more quickly achieve your growth objectives.

This engaging, interactive workshop is packed with individual and team exercises, creative examples, and case studies. You will also have many opportunities to evaluate agile marketing examples and hone in on your own technique. Throughout the session, you will discover what inspires and drives the best growth teams as well as learning the pitfalls they have learned to avoid.

Who Is This Workshop For?
