Enterprises are still in the early stages of integrating content strategy as a discipline, not only into the marketing mix, but also into operations and technology. Multinationals face a much more complex challenge: scaling content across borders, languages, cultures, and teams.

This report examines the specific challenges of creating an effective global content marketing strategy, as well as best practice recommendations.

Global content operations tend to operate either top-down, or bottom up. We learned neither approach works in isolation. Global content groups must enable local territories, but local (regions and/or countries) must be provided with sufficient autonomy to make decisions that will make content appropriate and meaningful within their geographic region. Global, regional, and local should, and must, inform the other.

This report was based on interviews with global content executives from companies including Intel, Visa, Save the Children, DuPont, Cisco, Intel, 3M and many more. It was additionally informed by the work we’ve done crafting global content strategies for some of the world’s leading brands.

Our latest report is out, led by my colleague Jessica Groopman and building off prior blockchain research I’ve conducted. Beyond the cryptocurrency hype, how will Blockchain actually impact business models? When it’s combined with IoT technology, it will give a rise to autonomous systems working strongly.

Here’s the report “The Internet of Trusted Things: Blockchain as the Foundation for Autonomous Products & Ecosystem Services” where we outline specific business use cases, and how it can impact supply chain, IoT network management, end user authentication, on-demand asset sharing networks, and finally, smart contracts.

This report is for forward-thinking executives and innovation leaders interested in exploring how distributed ledger technologies support IoT and automation strategies
