Past Meetup

Agile Marketing with Gez Smith

This Meetup is past

55 people went


I am very excited to present another great Agile first for our group.

Scaling Agile and Organisational change means changes to the entire organization, including marketing.

Gez Smith is just about to publish his book on using Agile philosophy and Scrum methodology in the field of marketing and he has agreed to come and speak on the subject at our next meetup.

The book is called ‘Agile Marketing: The Incomplete Guide’ and is about how marketing is currently an industry largely predicated on up front planning, specification and design, which is all used to launch campaigns in a single big bang approach. This works for predictable, simple and well understood environments, which is largely what marketers have been dealing with so far (TV, press, out of home, etc), but the Internet has now come along and made everything more complex, uncertain and unpredictable. As a result, the old approach to marketing no longer works as well, and the answer, he believes, lies in the approach software developers have been using to cope with the complexities and uncertainties of the digital world; the Agile philosophy.

Come and hear Gez's approach and experience in this field.
