Summary

The project structure for implementing a marketing automation platform (MAP) informs the required alignment between sales, marketing, customer success, project team, and key executives. Organizations should frame project roles so that the right people are playing the right jobs, and craft the project organization to align tasks and people to meet implementation goals.
