In this episode we talk with Rachel Krug who leads the marketing function at Right Networks, a firm that helps companies bring their accounting systems to the cloud. Rachel was familiar with Agile from her work as a product manager at Constant Contact but found herself adapting Agile for the marketing function in her current role.
She manages a small cross-functional team including a content lead, field marketer, marketing ops lead, and a partnerships leader. Plus, like most marketers at smaller firms, she relies on outside contractors and service providers. When Rachel arrived the team was operating in a reactive fashion without a rigorous operations or planning practice. In this session, she talks about introducing Agile with a handful of rituals and how those have made a huge impact on how the team functions and the results they produce. Listen in to learn about why she focused measurement and tracking out of the gate and how Agile later influenced a major product launch.
