This text focuses on the middle-management marketing decisions students are most likely to encounter in their careers. It emphasizes fundamental processes to help students develop the ability to apply marketing theories and concepts to decision-making situations. In this edition, the sections on market segmentation, differential positioning, product-line marketing strategies and factors in new product success and failure have been rewritten and more emphasis placed on branding, corporate culture, quality and ethics. A separate test bank has been added, which includes multiple-choice questions, as well as essay questions. Interactive computer simulations focusing on analysis and strategy now accompany the text.
