Modules of Study

Strategic Marketing Management:
Marketing is at the core of business. Outperforming the competition requires solid marketing knowledge and precise marketing decision making. An organisation's positioning, and the positioning of its products and services, depend on the formulation and implementation of intelligent and well-informed strategic marketing plans. All organisations operate in a dynamic marketplace. Competition, consumers, technology and market forces constantly redefine the way organisations operate. Staying competitive means that organisations need to continuously adjust and adapt their customer approach to meet changing needs and expectations. Strategic marketing is a way of focusing an organisation's energies and resources on a course of action that can lead to increased sales and dominance of a targeted market. A strategic marketing strategy combines product development, promotion, distribution, pricing, relationship management and other elements of marketing. It identifies an organisation's strategic marketing goals, and explains how they will be achieved, ideally within a designated timeframe.

Strategic change management is most effective when an organisation actively seeks the participation of all relevant stakeholders.
