All organisations – from modest start-ups to multinational corporations – can benefit from an effective marketing strategy, as it serves as a roadmap for the entire business. By formulating a coherent and well-considered marketing strategy, organisations can promote their business, cater to the right types of clients and allocate their resources correctly, all while safeguarding the reputation of the organisation.

Strategic Marketing is structured around the four key questions facing organisations and top management when deciding on their strategic direction:

1. Where are we now?
2. Where do we want to be?
3. How will we get there?
4. Did we get there?

In addressing these questions, the book covers topics such as:

  • analysis of the customer, competitor and market
  • competitive market strategies
  • refocusing and leveraging the business
  • sustainable competitive advantage
  • going global and selecting strategies for the way forward

Written with the undergraduate student in mind, Strategic Marketing offers a comprehensive view of the current developments and challenges facing the marketing world, and shows how an effective strategic basis is a valuable tool for addressing these challenges and providing strategic direction to the organisation. In this new edition two new chapters on branding and electronic marketing strategies have been included, making this an essential guide to contemporary strategic marketing.

R395 R300 Discovery Miles 3 000 Save R95 (24%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

For many, Africa is regarded as a place of mystery and negative images, where reports of natural disasters and civil strife dominate media attention, with relatively little publicity given to any of the continent's more positive attributes. Africa has at last begun to receive the depth of interest it has long deserved, in the shape of debates about trade, aid and debt, the `Make Poverty History' campaign, and the UK's `Commission on Africa'. But, behind the superficial media facade, Africa is a diverse, complex and dynamic place, with a rich history and a colonial engagement that, although short-lived, was fundamental in determining the long-term future of the continent. At the start of the second decade of the twenty-first century, when the world is engulfed in a major financial crisis, Africa has the dubious distinction of being the world's poorest continent. This book introduces and de-mystifies Africa's diversity and dynamism, and considers how its peoples and environments have interacted through time and space. The background and diversity of Africa's social, cultural, economic, political and environmental systems is examined, as well as key development issues which have affected Africa in the past and are likely to be significant in shaping the future of the continent. These include: the impact of HIV/AIDS; sources of conflict and post-conflict reconstruction; the state and governance; the nature of African economies in a global context and future development trajectories. Africa: Diversity and Development is a refreshing interdisciplinary text which enhances understanding of the background to Africa's current position and clarifies possible future scenarios. It is richly illustrated throughout with diagrams and plates, and contains a wealth of detailed case studies and current data.

Accounting literature refers to the procedural and conceptual approaches in the teaching of an introductory accounting course. This book integrates these two approaches by teaching students to understand the why of accounting before considering the how of accounting. The pedagogical philosophy used is referred to as the `concepts model', hence the title. This impacts on both the order of teaching of the topics, as well as how various topics are taught. A strong emphasis is placed on comprehending the conceptual framework, and especially on understanding and applying definitions and recognition criteria of the elements of the financial statements. Students are able to acquire a conceptual understanding of each topic before considering the procedural aspects. The fifth edition of A Concepts-based Introduction to Financial Accounting is up to date with the latest requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards. It incorporates expanded pedagogical features such as learning path tools at the beginning of each chapter and extracts from published financial statements within each chapter that relate to the chapter content. These complement the existing features including the highlighting of key definitions in the text and the integration of pause and reflect scenarios in each chapter. This textbook has an accompanying question book by DL Kolitz and M Kolitz, Questions, Exercises and Problems in Financial Accounting: A Concepts-Based Introduction. Lecturers' support material for the fifth edition include PowerPoint slides and teaching notes for each chapter on how to present the concepts-based approach. These are only made available to prescribing institutions. Support material for students includes lecture-readiness tests that assess students' understanding of each chapter in preparation for lectures.
