Marketing should be effective, efficient, and innovating, while focusing on understanding the customer’s needs. If we keep these thoughts in mind, we will only produce materials of value to a customer and only give the material to the customer when he needs it versus a constant barrage of information. The lean marketing assessment will provide a baseline upon which you can improve and most importantly provide a reference on what to do.

Many companies are now critically evaluating their processes to determine their marketing effectiveness in bringing their message to their customers. Marketing techniques of yesterday are being replaced by more efficient methods of engaging their customers  and as a result greatly minimizing costs.

Exploring the data to identify a cause and effect relationship between variables is an important part of the webinar and in building a Lean marketing process. Knowing your current state is one of the most powerful tools but is the least understood. Establishing a baseline and understanding your root marketing issues will result in a true reality check, without wishful thinking and superficial solutions creep into your marketing process.

An assessment will make it easier to create standards and once the standard is in place, it will then allow companies to continuously look for better ways to do the work because to be truly of lean fashion, it must be realized the work is never done, it is continuously improving. Without understanding this step in the process, people become confused with what planning and standards are meant to be. Standards are not control mechanisms. Having a process does not stunt creativity. A true standard is actually the direct opposite as it allows time to focus on the creative aspect as it is part of the plan. Standards and plans are dynamic. They let you know where the problem is quicker, where to begin a search for solutions, and prevent you from making the same mistake twice. Continuous improvement cannot happen without a standard. Continuous improvement in any part of the organization is the only true advantage that you have as a company.
