In a recent article, McKinsey analyzed how companies can achieve growth, and what sets the most successful companies apart. Comparing the work of more than 860 executives across the globe, McKinsey was able to uncover three main growth drivers in marketing – creativity, analytics and purpose. Excelling in all three elements of the so-called “growth triple play”, companies were able to achieve at least two times the growth compared to companies that don’t invest in these areas.

CREATIVITY is, as it has always been, a key part in marketing. Nowadays it is critical to infuse creativity with analytics. According to McKinsey analytics can guide the creative mind on where to focus. Focusing on return per ad and a personalized approach towards the audience, analytics help marketing teams become more efficient and make quicker decisions.

ANALYTICS are at the core of marketing decisions in triple-growth companies. According to McKinsey, it is however essential to deploy analytics with purpose. A holistic and flexible strategy to share insights across the whole organization is critical, driving decision making and innovation across all teams.
