Episode #6 Overview

The notion of failure in business and marketing is still one that carries negative associations and stigma. But, in reality, the best brands and organizations are failing - failing systematically and frequently. With more advanced context and analysis of failure, we can shift the mindset from 'who failed' to 'what happened' and create psychologically safe environments to fail, and realize the merits of doing so. And then when 'intelligent failure' is systemized in your team or organization through experimentation based in the scientific method, the health and agility of your marketing operation takes on all-new scale.

In the sixth episode of The Marketer’s MBA, Evan introduces viewers to advanced, published frameworks from MBA thought leaders to destigmatize failure and garner fresh new context of the phenomenon. Plus, viewers will walk away with a tactical framework to implement formal experimentation in their marketing program.

Tune in and learn about:
- The "Failure Spectrum:" a more precise, business-driven look at failure
- Detecting failure through psychological safety and failure constructs
- Intelligent failure and experimentation framework
