Find out where you fall on the modern marketing maturity curve

Join us for a half-day workshop to assess how data-driven your marketing organization is currently, and how to get to the level you want to be. Organizations of any size will benefit from this workshop, but discussion will include tips and tricks to help midsize organizations in particular. We’ll help you get started with customer experience management, digital marketing and marketing modernization strategies.


The first part of the workshop will consist of a health check - a comprehensive self-assessment to determine where your organization falls on the modern marketing maturity curve. SAS facilitators will then use your assessment results to lead workshop discussions, provide initial recommendations for next steps and highlight relevant best practices.

Workshop categories

Through a series of interactive self-assessments, the workshop will provide an opportunity to learn where your organization falls on the modern marketing maturity curve in four key areas.

Technology and Data Readiness: Examines how close your company is to having a comprehensive, integrated marketing technology ecosystem. Considerations include the scope, accessibility and quality of available data, the ability to handle big data sources effectively and the technologies in the marketing toolkit.

Business Alignment: Illustrates how well your marketing program aligns with overall business objectives and strategy. It examines business unit cooperation and coordination as well as the presence of multichannel marketing, customer experience management, and digital intelligence strategies, initiatives and measurements.

Analytics Readiness: Highlights the extent to which your company uses analytics and modeling to make fact-based decisions. It explores the scope and utilization of customer insights such as attitudes, sentiment, value and behavior.

Organizational Readiness: Explores organizational considerations necessary for effectively implementing an optimized, omnichannel, customer-focused marketing and brand program in which the customer journey is understood and enhanced. Executive sponsorship, skill sets and training, and the degree of collaboration in the company’s culture are all considered.
