Marketing agility and the CMO50

CMO is delighted to bring you the first in our new 3-part video series exploring how CMO50 luminaries are achieving greater marketing agility.

Agility has become a central principle for modern marketing leaders as they adapt to the rapidly changing nature of marketing brought about through the digital and data revolution. From the ever-greater need for responsiveness to customer experiences and needs, to the dexterity required to optimise campaigns and engagement promptly and relevantly, agility is a cornerstone of the way teams operate, leaders lead, and marketing programs are orchestrated. 

In this special 3-part CMO50 video series, featuring representatives from the CMO50 alumni and our CMO50 sponsor, Adobe, we’re going to explore what steps marketing chiefs have been taking to lift their team agility, from cultural rethinking to technology investment. We’ll also look at how perceptions of agility have been transformed under the shadow of the ongoing global pandemic and in response to the curve balls it’s continuing to throw at Australian brands.

Our guest for episode 1 is RMIT University chief experience officer, Chaminda Ranasinghe.

Chaminda is an accomplished leader with 20 years of expertise in transforming organisations across the globe into innovative, market-leading digital organisations. As Chief Experience Officer (CXO), Chaminda leads Global Marketing, Digital & Experience, University Lifecycle and Student Recruitment for RMIT University.

His diverse experience includes having worked with iconic organisations such as ANZ, EnergyAustralia, Aviva and Ford Motor Company across the US,UK, Asia and Australia. His approach is underpinned by developing high performing teams and fostering a collaborative organisational culture focused on customer-centricity.

When friction can be a brand’s best friend

I always enjoy those oft-forgotten, in-between moments in any experience. These moments are not necessarily part of any defined experience per se. They likely wouldn’t show up in an organisation’s plans or ideas to help make the customer journey or user flow as simple, easy and seamless as possible.

How much attention should we be paying to the ‘attention economy’?

There’s been a lot of buzz in the advertising industry lately about what’s coined the ‘attention economy’. And it’s fast becoming the new battleground for media channels to prove their wares and to develop and espouse new attention metrics.

Sometimes the best solutions are some of the most counterintuitive

Exceptional CMOs do exceptional things for themselves and for those they inspire. At your best you are creative, innovative and inspirational. We have a problem though. We now live in a corporate world that demands sensibility where everything you do is measurable and stakeholders demand predictability – the antithesis of breakthrough and transformation.
