The thinking is, "We made it to the *Inc.
5000, *we must be doing something right. Why do we need to change this*?"*
Because you were smart enough to hire someone with marketing experience.
Meaning you knew enough to know you could do a better job marketing but you lacked those skills.
So you hired me to get those skills, and I'm telling you this is how it is done.
Because through experience I've learned that this is how the pros do it, and I assume you want to get to the next level.
True some of those books are technical and not necessarily marketing guides, but look at the front matter, particularly Apple which explicitly refers to a separate Apple Marketing Communications Style Guide.
Looks like you get to create the "properly constituted marketing department."
Cheers & good luck!
