Aims of the module
Growth is a key driver within any organisation and developing both a structured and creative approach to determining where potential or existing opportunities exist is an essential skill for senior marketing professionals. The size, type and form of the organisation can help or hinder this process so an in-depth knowledge of the complexities for the organisation and its context is critically important to facilitate decision making at the strategic level.
This module is designed to enable the marketer starting with a wider view of organisations to focus down onto a specific area – ideally the one they work in or interact with in their current role, -and to facilitate solutions which maximise strategic fit. This module can also be delivered in one of two ways, dependent on the learner profiles: Either specific to an organisational type e.g. B2B or SME organisations are plentiful across both the UK and International markets OR as a generic module.
