These areas are crucial for B2B companies in the realm of Marketing Orchestration:

1. Strategic Alignment and Planning

Strategic alignment and planning

Effective strategic alignment and planning set the stage for success in B2B marketing. The absence of clear goals can lead to aimless efforts, resulting in wasted resources. Common pitfalls include vague or unrealistic goal-setting, inconsistent targeting, misaligned budgets, and unclear briefing processes. Assessing these areas ensures your marketing efforts are purposeful, resonate with your audience, and are supported by a well-allocated budget.

2. Roles and Processes 

Roles and processes

Smooth workflow execution requires well-defined roles and processes. Without a clear plan from planning to execution, bottlenecks and confusion can derail progress. Common pitfalls include ambiguous workflows, lack of role clarity (RACI), and ineffective cross-functional collaboration. Evaluating these aspects ensures streamlined decision-making, accountability, and a strong collaborative ecosystem.

3. Project Management Tools

Templates, data-driven approaches, and a well-structured tech stack are crucial for efficient project management. Inconsistent templates can lead to disorganized processes, while a lack of data-driven insights hinders optimization. Budget misallocation and inefficient tech stacks are common pitfalls. A strong evaluation in this area ensures standardized processes, informed decision-making, and resource optimization.

4. Communication and Collaboration


Effective communication and collaboration are the backbone of successful marketing orchestration. Inadequate meeting cadences can lead to a lack of progress, while insufficient communication channels hinder collaboration. Poorly documented processes contribute to inconsistencies. Addressing these areas ensures focused meetings, seamless communication, and a well-documented knowledge base for consistent performance.
