When faced with the prospect of participating in an Agile transformation, many marketers react with skepticism and apprehension. The jargon around Agile, combined with its well known history as an approach to creating software, makes it seem foreign and/or irrelevant to their day-to-day work. To overcome these hesitations, it’s crucial that we don’t try to shoehorn marketing into agility, or vice versa. Instead, the two need to co-evolve.

Andrea will share her own experience with this type of agile adoption within her marketing team, which tried multiple methodologies and tools in its quest to simply find what worked Hopefully the story of this common sense journey can help other marketers ditch their doubt and join the agile marketing revolution.
