Strategy & Strategic Thinking

To say change is a constant in today’s world is a cliché, but true nonetheless. Times are changing, as is the role of the communicator who is being asked to do more in 2019 than ever before.
In the past, communicators were expected to produce “stuff” for the business, with unknown or little-demonstrated value to the bottom line. Picture a fast food drive-through: pull up, order this week’s article, newsletter or eBrochure, pick-up your order at the next window, and pull away, only to return when you need something new.

This is not to say that producing content is not valuable in the current communication landscape. On the contrary, communicators are expected to be “always on” publishers. But above all, the big opportunity for communicators is to demonstrate value to the business.
