November 6, 2019

Why Read This Report

Analyst relations (AR) programs confuse investment in AR — like briefings — with a return on that investment. They treat intermediate milestones — like report mentions — as if they were more important than changing buyer behavior productively. Consequently, AR more commonly measures investment than a business return on that investment. This report shows how to put investment back into its secondary place and target key performance indicators (KPIs) that measure delivered business value instead.
