It starts with a strong business case and strategy for how the technology will be adopted and requires the right skills, resources, and training be in place to effectively use the technology. Colleen advocates for an agile approach to marketing technology adoption – choosing tools that are the right size and scale, and iteratively proving wins before “boiling the ocean”.
