Re: Great diagnosis of the problem and play book on getting along
Thank you for your comment.  It's rewarding to hear that our thoughts align on the core issues driving a lack for alginment as well as the actions needed to overcome the obstacles.  When CMOs and CIOs do come to the table with an open mind and focus on the how to collaborate, they can build a strong blueprint for marketing technology to capitalize on new customer engagement opportunities to drive business growth

That's why marketing departments "go rogue" and turn to anybody but the IT department.
