The powerful new MARKETING STRATEGY features its most aggressive case revision program to date. The fifth edition includes six all-new cases written specifically for the text and five new outside cases from Harvard Business School and the Ivey School of Business, while other cases have been updated and, in most cases, rewritten with a new focus. And for the first time, the book includes vibrant photographs and captions--making it an even more exciting read in 12 succinct chapters. MARKETING STRATEGY emphasizes teaching students to think and act like marketers. It presents strategy from a perspective that guides strategic marketing management in the social, economic, and technological arenas in which businesses function today--helping students develop a customer-oriented market strategy and market plan. Its practical approach to analyzing, planning, and implementing marketing strategies is based on the creative process involved in applying marketing concepts to the development and implementation of marketing strategy. An emphasis on critical thinking enables students to understand the essence of how marketing decisions fit together to create a coherent strategy. Well-grounded in developing and executing a marketing plan, the text offers a complete planning framework, thorough marketing plan worksheets, and a comprehensive marketing plan example for students to follow.
