We are now in the #AgeoftheCustomer, in which buyers are using technology to gain more power over the purchase process. That power flows from customers’ newfound ability to seamlessly price, critique, and direct their purchases using online tools, information, and interactions. These trends force enterprises to be more flexible, more nimble, more global, and more connected than ever before, and the best way to thrive is to create a customer-obsessed enterprise. “While the pace of change feels extreme, most marketing leaders are energized by what they see as new opportunity for marketing to take a more strategic leading role,” notes Forrester Vice President and Principal Analyst Laura Ramos.

On Wednesday, December 18, @Forrester will host a #ForrIdeas Twitter chat with Forrester Vice President and Principal Analyst Laura Ramos on what it takes for CMOs and marketing leaders to inspire their firms to become more customer-obsessed and win in this new digital age.
