“Does the world need another CMO survey?” We asked ourselves this question before embarking on CMO Outlook.

The answer is “yes.”

We know CMOs today face several daunting questions, not just about media channels and agency choices, but about data challenges, technology options and digital transformation. There are many CMO reports that aim to review past performance and note present conditions, but rarely did we find questions asked in studies that would help marketers make critical decisions in the near future.

The result of this exploration is CMO Outlook, a biannual initiative by R3 and Campaign that aims to give leading marketers an edge in a highly competitive and fragmented market by tracking available opportunities and identifying gaps in overall strategy. Our study goes beyond past budgets, and focuses on future-facing challenges and the CMO’s next move. The desired outcome is to provide a regular assessment and deeper understanding of the needs of CMOs which will enable their decision-making process.
