The Progression of Agency Value in APAC: Developing a Model for Agency Maturity in a Digital World report, published in association with Adobe, aims to identify the key challenges faced by agencies in the fast-changing marketplace of the Asia-Pacific region.

Building on previous research on agency value by renowned blogger, writer and consultant Neil Perkin, the study looks at how agencies are responding through their own use of technology and the required adaptations of skillsets, processes and behaviours. The 25-page report also provides a broad-based model for agency maturity incorporating digital media, data, technology and digitalisation.

A total of 15 in-depth interviews were conducted across the Asia-Pacific region.

  • Phase 2. Desktop research. Research into existing thinking, issues, examples and models relevant to a comprehensive consideration of the evolution of agencies and their use of technology.
