Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2011
A new suite of strategic services and training tools from Marketing Operations Partners address fundamental challenges marketing leaders and professionals face today, including chaotic marketing complexity and escalating demand for marketing accountability.
Marketing Operations Partners has been leading the way in helping companies transition from Marketing Operations 1.0, a focus on the fundamentals of operational efficiency and accountability, to Marketing Operations 2.0, an emphasis on strategic alignment and integration of marketing operations with the overall corporation through holistic insight and practices.
Marketing Operations Partners’ new initiatives accelerate professionalism of the evolving discipline of marketing operations (MO):
- MOtivator path for marketing leaders who must tame marketing complexity growing geometrically as organizations scale in size and as new models of Marketing, such as social media and mobile marketing, must be integrated into marketing strategy.
- MOver path for marketing professionals and stakeholders who have new operational accountabilities beyond their core competencies and need to get up-to-speed quickly.
- MObilizer path for marketing automation providers who need to maximize the value of their solutions to their clients.
Bridging these three paths is the new online training course, “Marketing Operations 2.0: From 2011 Tactical Discipline to 20/20 Strategic Vision.” First offered through University of California Extension on an annual basis, this new offering is now available worldwide, on-demand, and can completed at one’s own pace.
According to tech industry analyst International Data Corporation, marketing operations has been the fastest growing job role in technology marketing over the past few years and is now the fourth largest job category in large marketing departments. Marketing Operations Certification is also available by completing optional challenges within the course; this is the only existing certification source for this growing discipline.
These initiatives are part of a customer-centric approach Marketing Operations Partners is taking to help midsize to large enterprises overcome stubborn marketing operations obstacles to sustained profitability. In conjunction with this strategy, Marketing Operations Partners Founder Gary Katz has appointed Lynn Hunsaker, a world-renowned authority on customer experience optimization, as the firm’s new president and chief executive officer, a position Katz has held since the company’s inception in 2006.
“Lynn is the ideal person to assume the leadership helm of Marketing Operations Partners at this time,” said Katz. “She’s been with the company since the outset and her multi-faceted background in strategy, marketing, quality, change management, and organizational development gives her an intimate understanding of how to integrate customer insight into marketing action, as well as what it takes to help clients transform from paying lip service to customer centricity to truly living it – from the inside out.”
