The very best business isn't born out of hunches, macho tactical skirmishing or simply 'being busy', but is the product of careful calculation and understanding customers' needs, wants and aspirations. Marketing Strategy Masterclass is a 'how to' book of marketing strategy focused on doing what our customers want us to do, how they want it done. Included throughout are the wise words of a choice selection of history's masters, depicted on the book's front cover. Aimed at professional marketing managers, business development managers and students, this real and practical masterclass is an indispensable reference for use on its own or alongside Marketing Strategy, 3rd edition, also published by Butterworth-Heinemann.
