New-Think Marketing: Part 1

One P futurists make predictions. Two P futurists “precipitate preparations” [i.e., create awareness of future conditions requiring current period behavior change and investment]. Many One P futurists predicted that power in the enterprise [and power over budgets] would shift dramatically to Chief Marketing Officers and Chief Digital Officers.

Whether this is because the marketing folk have made such a hash out of mobile and social investments I cannot say. As a Two P futurist I can safely attest that all C’s – whether they are in favor and have access to budget or not – are going to have to prepare for New-Think Marketing.... Read more

We Are Entering An Era Where Infrastructure Matters

I recently asked a group of senior executives, “When you think of Paris, what is the first thing that comes to mind?” Architecture figured prominently in many of the responses. Some said “the Eiffel tower.” Others suggested “the Louvre” or “Notre Dame Cathedral”. No one mentioned the Centre Georges Pompidou completed in 1977 by architects Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano under budget at $100,000,000.... Read more
