What does this have to do with agile?
This leads to twotransformational mandates:1. Everything is marketing.2. Everyone must be agile.
These two mandates are intertwined.
By “agile,” I do mean little-a agile. But Big-A Agile methodologies  help us achieve such agility.
* We may need to adjust  these methodologies  for different contexts.
But first, why is everything marketing?   (I do mean little-m marketing.)
“Business has only two basic functions:      marketing and innovation.”                           – Peter Drucker
The traditional multi-month marketing cycle:        Plan                Create                         Distribute         ...
“Big, large, glassbuildings do not buy software.  People do.”    – Jonathan Becher      CMO, SAP

This is why everything is now marketing.
“Marketing is tooimportant to be left to the marketing   department.”          – Seth Godin      ( – David Packard )
Employees are consumers too, and they’re  seeking the same dynamics at work.
This is why consumerization of IT is thriving.

If you’ve got a brilliant idea, and you can prove it, you can launch a marketing technology venture.
