How CMOs can use their knowledge of the market to create and drive organizational growth Illustrated with case studies from Wal-Mart to GE, this book argues that the role of chief marketer needs to be redefined and outlines five shifts marketers can make to break out of their marginalized role and use their insights and knowledge to drive the growth agenda of their organization.
