a consumer and a brand. Today’s consumers expect relevant communications that speak
directly to their needs in the moment. We have the technology today to deliver such messages –
but there are significant barriers to developing relevant, contextual programs of this kind.

Our research reports on the 2,000 executives from the marketing community, across 22 markets, who agreed that innovation drives growth.
However, barriers to innovation remain significant, ranging from isolation within the business, to a lack of insight into the data, and absent support from leadership in 24% of cases, and data remains the second largest issue for marketing with a 10% gap.
New technologies help harness data, demonstrate how innovation will benefit teams and businesses, and help CMOs create a successful innovation agenda.

In global, multicultural organizations, simply expecting all employees to speak one common language, such as English, marginalizes the potential impact of international talent and leaves monolingual staff ill-equipped to help the organization compete effectively in a globalized environment.
In an increasingly global economy, U.S. companies will perform better by hiring individuals who can communicate in foreign languages and helping current employees develop language skills. Forbes Insights, in conjunction with Rosetta Stone, surveyed more than 100 executives at large U.S. businesses (annual revenues of more than $500 million) and found that language barriers have a broad and pervasive impact on business operations. The survey found that foreign language skills will be even more vital in the future and that language abilities can help executives advance their careers, speed overseas expansion, and boost corporate—as well as personal—success.
