The second edition of Strategic Marketing examines the key aspects of traditional marketing strategy and provides an assessment and synthesis of recent thinking. Drawing on Porter's strategic-analytic framework in relation to marketing decision-making, the authors provide a coherent structure, allowing students to understand the theoretical foundations of the subject. A wealth of pedagogical features enhances the learning experience; such as abstracts of journal articles to introduce students to primary sources of information and encourage further reading. A diverse range of case studies, including cases on brand value and budgets, enable students to understand the application of marketing strategy in a real-life context.

The text focuses on the key theme of creating and sustaining competitive advantage, articulated through the following framework:
Where are we now?
Where do we want to be?
How will we get there?
Did we get there?

This framework provides students with the tools and techniques to assess the role of marketing strategy in an organization and to evaluate its impact and contribution.

Review:

This is one of the best written and most lively books on Strategic Marketing. Logical, concise, and to the point; it stretches students to think - which is refreshing. Mike Flynn, University of Gloucestershire Business School The authors integrate classic literature alongside the more contemporary and cutting-edge debates in marketing strategy, illustrated with a great range of examples and case-studies. A well researched text that is written in such a way to be accessible to both undergraduate and taught postgraduate students. Jonathan Elms, University of Stirling
