Agile – The key to faster, more responsive Marketing
More and more CMOs are looking at Agile Marketing as the way to modernize their organization and make it faster and more responsive to the needs of the business while engaging and re-activating marketers that are simply struggling under the load and overheads of the old ways of doing Marketing.
So, Is Agile Marketing For Me?
Join our Lean/Agile Marketing workshop to evaluate whether Lean/Agile Marketing can help your marketing organization and how you can take your first steps towards implementing it.
This is a two-day course designed to get teams up and running on Agile Marketing. The first day covers basic concepts and walks teams through how they can apply these concepts to a hypothetical company. The second day helps them create their marketing backlog, hold their first Sprint Planning session, and prepare for their first Sprint including how they will manage the flow during that sprint. On the Monday following the training, they can begin that first Sprint.
Who is it for
This class is for marketers and marketing leaders interested in addressing some of the challenges in marketing via a new marketing operating system.

Trainers – Jim Ewel & Yuval Yeret
About Jim: I love marketing. I think it’s one of the most difficult and one of most exciting jobs in any company. I also think it’s one of the least understood jobs and sometimes least respected.Currently, I’m doing a number of things. My primary activity is my agile marketing consulting practice, which I call “Peel the Layers”, because that’s an apt description of how I work with clients. Inevitably, their businesses are complex, and it takes focus to peel back enough of the layers to get to the core of their problem so that I can help them. I’ve also been blogging about agile marketing, because I think it has the potential to do for marketing what agile development has done for development: increase the predictability, transparency, velocity and adaptability to change.Jim is one of the leading Agile Marketing bloggers and practitioners and was involved in the creation of the Agile Marketing Manifesto.
