    Ask chief marketing officers about their top challenges, and they’re likely to include recruiting affordable talent. Even for lateral moves, employees are being lured by massive salary increases, and candidates who have already accepted jobs have walked away in favor of a higher offer.

    To address this chaos, David Kirven, CMO of data management platform Reltio, has made employee retention a top priority. His efforts include involving employees in Reltio’s repositioning initiative, making brand values part of every meeting, recharge days and weekly coffee chats with the CEO. Kirven also offers recruits “step-up” roles—versus lateral positions—and supports those new employees with mentors.

    Listen Here | From Renegade Marketers Unite, Episode 294: All Roads Lead to Measurement: How to Future-Proof B2B Marketing

    Here’s a riddle for you: If marketing grew the business but nobody was around to measure it, did it really happen? No matter what side of this philosophical query you stand on, let’s face it: No one is going to take marketing seriously if they can’t quantify it with data.

    Put any two B2B metrics dashboards side by side, and you’ll soon find that there is no one-size-fits-all way to prove marketing’s value—but there is a lot to learn by observing what’s working for others.

    In this episode of Renegade Marketers Unite, CMOs Chris Willis of AcrolinxTara Robertson of Teamwork, and Karl Van den Bergh of Gigamon each share how they evolved marketing metrics at their organizations. Tune in to learn all kinds of amazing takes on the world of measurement, including:

    • Why a CMO should be a CPO (Chief Pipeline Officer), too
    • How to use the innovative Sales Velocity formula
    • Tips on how to measure the unmeasurable
    • Why you need to ditch revenue as a leading indicator, and more!

    Listen Here | From Renegade Marketers Unite, Episode 292: B2B Innovation is a Learned Muscle

    Ah, innovation. The buzzword of every company striving to be different, daring, and bold. But what the heck does it actually look like to innovate? And how can a CMO get their teams to start innovating in a way that actually yields growth (i.e., not just quirky ideas in brainstorming meetings)?

    Carla Johnson is the perfect person to walk us through her foolproof formula for innovation that moves the needle. She’s a 10x author, and her most recent book RE:Think Innovation busts the myth that innovation requires any special degrees, training, or skills.

    The key takeaway from this interview is that innovation is a learned muscle, and Carla lays out how the exercises every CMO can use to shape their own innovation powers AND build a team filled with strong innovators. This episode of Renegade Marketers Unite is not to be missed.
