Introducing the CIM Marketing Capability Forum: a new, private community for experienced marketing capability specialists and marketing leaders passionate about building marketing excellence.

An invitation-only community for senior practitioners in major, international and complex organisations. Contact to find out more.

Over the last decade, we’ve seen a shift in how organisations approach learning and skills development. This shift has seen a change in focus from ad hoc, isolated development interventions oriented around the individual, to more strategic, integrated and business-aligned investments in building capability of the collective (ie the function).

This shift has also seen a broadening of what we mean by ‘capability’, from a purely skills-oriented interpretation (largely addressed by training alone) to a more holistic, integrated definition – one which we capture in this simple formula: • • • • People: structure, competencies, talent, culture, learning and development. Process: core business processes, operating rhythms, ‘how we do things’ and ‘how we make decisions’. Platforms: systems, technology, tools, infrastructure and integration. Capacity: ability to execute, prioritisation, resourcing models, agility.

In addition, we’ve also witnessed the emergence of a new form a role/function dedicated to defining and nurturing marketing capability – a ‘HR Business Partner 2.0’, if you will. This new role, typified by titles such as ‘Marketing Capability’ and ‘Marketing Excellence’ is neither pure-HR or pure-marketing; rather, a hybrid of the two with expertise and support from HR but aligned directly with marketing leadership and specialising in capability strategies for the marketing function.

The role of the Marketing Capability Forum  To provide experienced marketing capability specialists and senior marketing leaders in major, complex organisations with a private forum and genuine peer network to aid knowledge exchange.  To develop best practices and practical recommendations for improving the effectiveness of marketing capability strategies and investments.  To help participants to solve common problems and challenges by looking outside of their traditional sector or network for cross-industry insights.  To build the knowledge base and create content for the benefit of the wider marketing community.

Session one: 17 March 2014 roundtable Generalists vs. specialists – getting the right balance and what this means for talent and capability strategy. The organisational mandate for marketing and the tools at its disposal have changed dramatically over recent years. An explosion in new media, technologies and channels have combined to radically change the skillset (actual or required) of many marketing organisations, leading to a number of management dilemmas – and this roundtable focuses on one of the most significant: how to balance specialist expertise with generalist roles and skills, against the backdrop of broader commercial and business understanding and competence. This issue doesn’t simply affect the training curriculum for marketers – it impacts the whole talent and capability landscape: • • • • • Recruitment, talent development, career pathways and succession planning Learning and skills development Resourcing models (build/buy/borrow) Knowledge management Marketing structure (silo’s within a silo)
