Uber Ousts Top Deputy as Fate of CEO Kalanick Hangs in Balance

Take Marketing Off Autopilot and Get Creative


More than a quarter of marketers went into marketing because they wanted to be creative, researchers have found. So why do so many B2B marketing efforts seem exactly the same?
The reason, in part, is that some things work well. In nature, convergent evolution leads different kinds of organisms to similar solutions when they work. The number of strategies that will lead to success is limited. Marketers don’t simply echo the successful efforts of other marketers, though — they also parrot things that don’t really work.

Will Amazon Go Reinvent Retail?


Every time I walk into a retail store, I complain. I grumble to my wife about the same pet peeve every time we go shopping. After walking the aisles and filling the basket, you then must go through the most inefficient checkout process. First you unload everything, then it’s rung up, then you put the items in bags that go back into your basket before you can walk out of the store. There must be a better way. Amazon Go suggests there is. Shouldn’t it be easy, with today’s technology, to cut through the mess and reinvent this process?

Blockchain: CRM's Next Frontier


We’ve seen a parade of technologies coming into the front office since 2000, including browser-based cloud computing, social media, mobile technology, workflow, journey mapping, and big data and analytics. It’s typical that at first there’s only a tenuous relationship between the technology and CRM’s original mission, but over a short time innovators adopt and commercialize the innovation — often by rethinking business processes that leverage the technology’s attributes. I think the next invasion of CRM will be blockchain technology.
