It can unleash a whole array of new marketing opportunities for growth hacking as well as for "baking" marketing directly into your products or services.

Written by a premier practitioner of modern marketing, this book will provide you with: Insights on the evolution of product development and management in the organization—and why marketing must partner with them in the new era An understanding of Agile methods and their application to marketing A plan for integrating Agile with your traditional methods Tactics to drive alignment with product management A pathway to becoming the steward of customer experience Let us know what you think about the points raised in the podcast via our LinkedIn group (CIM | The Chartered Institute of Marketing Levitt Group) or Twitter (@CIMInfo_Levitt) using #LevittAM.

I'm a CIM Member and a keen consumer of marketing thinking. For me The Knowledge podcasts are decidedly average I'm afraid to say. They just seem rather pedestrian and a missed opportunity. A case of a brand that needs a refresh. The content seems a bit pseudo academic, but not particularly robust. I found the thinking in this episode for instance to be a bit all over the place. Sorry, but you did invite feedback!
