How To Solve The Problem of Marketing Team Execution

Execution is always a challenge.

In scaling SaaS there are always a million priorities for teams. It doesn't tend to get solved by OKRs or V2MOM frameworks. Actually, it's common as you grow the team, the productivity can decline. For marketing, execution is a huge challenge. Something I struggled with over the years.

Why is this?

It's often because earlier on smaller teams find it easier to focus. When you are scaling too many requests, workstreams and ideas get shared more regularly. The CEO or leadership exacerbate this issue. They follow a structured V2MOM or OKR process and tell all to focus on these outcomes. At the same time, suggest many more requests, demands or outcomes outside of the plan.

Wanna know the secret to better execution?

It's a simple, methodical system.

Drumroll, please.
