Picture this. You’re at a Gourmerican burger joint chomping a cheeseburger, when an outspoken vegan friend starts preaching that you’re killing the planet. Last week, that same vegan downed a pricey glass of pinot before their flight to a far-flung destination, armed with their strongest mossie repellant and first aid kit. Anything amiss?
A new infographic from Uberflip has set out to detail the top traits modern CMOs need to ride out the digital and technology disruption they’re facing today.
The (Not so secret) formula of the modern CMO infographic pulls together data from recent Deloitte, Accenture and Aberdeen Research among other vendor sources, to outline the focus areas for the role.
Key among these are building longer-term relationships both with customers and internal peers, embracing change, having a passion for technology, living for data, and an innate ability to balance tasks.
According to Deloitte figures included in the infographic, the biggest areas of management change for CMOs have been greater revenue growth and responsibility, increasing data analytics skills, owning customer-facing channels, and playing a greater customer service role.
