“The world of business and marketing has changed forever. We identified Agile Marketing as one of our key strategies and Jim Ewel’s name kept coming up. Jim’s training on Agile Marketing for the agency was amazing. Jim got the key agency teams out of their comfort zones, and got them to start to think differently about not only how we interact with our clients, but also how we operate internally. The sessions were very hands on, practical and Jim left us with real, actionable next steps for the whole agency. Invaluable!”
– Jeff Plowman, V.P. Client Services, McMillan
“Great marketing teams know how to learn – and the best way to do that is through structured rapid experimentation. Through agile training, Jim provides the tools and process for teams to excel here and truly evolve marketing from an output to an outcome organization. Simply an incredible agile coach!”
– Caleb Rubin, VP of Marketing, Equitable Bank
“There is no ‘if’ every organization adopts Agile practices; there is only the question of ‘when.’ Jim’s approach is battle tested with his experiences over the past decade helping companies make the evolutionary leap to Agile. The moment you put his book down, you’ll be able to launch right into his time-tested approach to getting adoption with your teams.”
– Jascha Kaykas-Wolff, President, Lytics, Former CMO, Mozilla
“There are two kinds of marketers today—those that have embraced the shift to rapid iteration, and an outcome orientation (in a word: Agile), and those who are learning the hard way by being outplayed in the market. Jim Ewel has written a masterclass in Agile adoption, distilled from years of coaching growth organizations of all sizes through the transition.”
– Peter Francis, Head of Global Growth at Qualtrics
“Practical guidance and insight with immediate ‘ROI’ for marketing leaders in all stages of their Agile transformation journey.”
– Stephanie Ferguson, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft
