Great timing for this post Pat- We did this presentation at the Xplor conference and the 2020 virtual Xplor conference kicked off today. The presentation was a lot of fun - and a great opportunity to vent about real life. In my business at that time I was constantly having try to find the rosetta stone that would make the marketing strategy make sense to the operations and IT and compliance people - and vice versa. I realized that we had to become the rosetta stone! The technology may have evolved, but the fundamental need to communicate goals effectively is still there.
