Siloed Centralised Integrated "Content probably exists within "Everything published has to come to corp comms for sign off first so we see everything being produced" "We have teams within various business units which would make good corporate content, but we have no way of knowing that it exists" marketing - comms, digital and social - that all work closely together to ensure that content is used across all channels" So in summary... Over the next 12 months we expect to see a growing divide between companies that organise for content and those that do not. Those that can measure success, refine and invest cannily in the amplification and promotion of their content will reap the rewards in terms of influence and reputation enhancement.
