Having the right marketing systems in your firm’s tech stack can make the difference between success and failure. But how do you find the right tech tool? Will it address the problem at hand? How do you implement and get people to use it? And what happens after rollout?

This four-part bootcamp will explore best practices and what pitfalls to avoid when it comes to accurately defining your business need, evaluating your current and future tech stack components, making the business case for a new system, and implementing your purchase with optimal adoption. We will also explore how you can leverage a successful technology project to drive your own professional development forward.
