Designing a modern marketing team structure
How you structure your marketing team has a profound impact on team performance.
The right structure is a catalyst for increased employee engagement collaboration and the commercial outcomes you need as CMO. The correct structure helps you bake in agility, responsiveness to change, and accountability at the right levels. And it empowers your people to do their best work.
On the flip side, if you have the wrong structure, you risk stifling innovation, creating silos, bureaucracy, and employee dissatisfaction. And this hampers your ability to drive results.
Our approach to marketing team remodeling
Growth Generators use a consultative, design-thinking approach for marketing team remodeling.
We work collaboratively with you through four stages to consider, converge, create then confirm your remodelled marketing team. The first two stages are there to ensure we deeply understand the problem. We can focus on the root causes and identify opportunities for improvement. During the last two phases, we centre in on developing the right solutions to achieve your new team vision.
Minimal disruption with maximum outcomes
Growth Generators has led multiple team reorganisations from both the inside as CMO and the outside as a consultant.
Our expertise in marketing, organizational development, and leadership means we always factor in the human side of change. This helps you minimise disruption and maximise the success of your marketing team transformation.
