    To transform digital ad capabilities and get the most out of current technology, it makes sense to start at the beginning, by addressing critical questions:

    GPT: What, Why, How 7

    HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM GPTBUILD THE BUSINESS CASE

    EVALUATE CURRENT AD BUSINESS AND PRODUCT OBJECTIVES

    Do you know what products youre selling? Are they aligned for your business?

    Are your processes streamlined and efficient?

    How do you modify your product catalog to leverage the new capabilities that GPT can enable for your offerings?

    Do you have the right visibility, analytics tools and reporting to be able to answer these questions?

    HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM GPTConnect the dots in end-to-end, cross-functional processes. Break down organizational boundaries and eliminate rework and manual entry.

    Engage stakeholders to design end-to end process standardized taxonomy for automation and synchronization across the digital ad operations environment.

    Go five layers deep. Analyze and redesign site structure and hierarchy design with tags at five layers (not just two) to enable better segmentation (not to mention more efficient and more manageable ways to sell the same ad slots).

    Configure and Test. With multiple technologies to update, identify who is responsible to make the updates and ensure they happen at the right time.

    Ensure integrated testing is planned and completed across the end-to-end process flows which confirms the value from the new GPT functionality is achieved.

    HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM GPTPlan the change, then drive the change. Identify and plan what needs to change across:

    Web properties Mobile apps Content management systems

    Train. Train. Train. Dont overlook the people factor. New products and trafficking capabilities mean changes across the sales, operations, and finance teams.

    Robust training and communications efforts help boost end-user adoptions, which can mean the difference between mediocre and outstanding returns on investments in new technologies.

    Will this be a big-bang implementation, or a phased roll-out across the properties? The more that needs to change and more organizations impacted, the more complex planning must be and more robust communication is required. Set the plan and then drive the plan.
