Build strategies for effective creativity

The study shows that marketers and creatives alike agree that having a clear vision and strategy to harness creativity is paramount for business success - yet less than half of respondents feel confident in their leadership ability to deliver a creative culture.

We heard from you that the industry needs to find and use universal methods and processes to build creative ideas faster, so the study shares four proven processes used by Lion-winners, to help you find a sure route to impactful creativity.

Creativity is at a crossroads. With the rise of technology and data, marketers are expected to be more tactical and exact in every brand action, however bold. And bold creativity requires guts. In the coming years, we’ll see how data, technology, and guts fall into balance.”
