MACMA March 7, 2024 Webinar
Embracing Disruption: Leveraging Change to Challenge the Status Quo and
Enhance Technology Decision-Making


Sometimes a calculated untangling of old processes is the only way forward. When nothing else seems to be working and you start to lose trust in your data integrity, it’s time to pull it apart. At HBR we took a step back and asked: who are our visitors and subscribers, how are they interacting with us, what are all the touchpoints, and what do they mean? Join us and learn how we rebuilt the way we think about data definitions and launched a new marketing platform in order to future-proof our architecture and build a scalable model for a consumer-centric communication system that relies on the what, how, and when of interactions.
