Unit 7: 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

Your multinational appliance company wants to stay competitive and is continuously adjusting and adapting its customer approach to meet changing needs and expectations. Recently due a rise in heart disease in the country, the company has come up with ‘Air Fryers’ where cooking oil is not required to fry products.

You are required to discuss the learning outcomes in perspective of this scenario.
