Marketing Management Final Assessment Brief

The Final Assessment follows on from the Formative Assessment but covers all the marketing concepts.

Firstly, you need to choose an organisation whose marketing you will study. You can choose the same organisation as you did for the Formative Assessment. The Presentation - Guidelines for Assessments - posted to the overview, Unit 3 and Unit 8 tabs of the course - gives further guidance on the choice of organisation. Please take care to read this document carefully.

The chosen organisation needs to respect the following criteria:

  • to be an existing organisation whose correct name is used;
  • to have competition thereby excluding monopolistic entities;
  • not to be Apple, Coca-Cola nor Safaricom (these have been chosen too often).

Next, analyse the target organisation, using all of the concepts covered in this module. You may recall in summary the concepts you use, but do not spend long describing the concept – we need you to apply it to the target organisation. The concepts are:

  • Marketing Mix (7P’s & 4C’s)
  • Differentiation and Competitive Advantage
    • Coping with Commoditisation (+Total Product and Solution offering)
    • Segmentation
    • Branding
      • Managing (especially Service Element)
      • Experiential Marketing, Customer Relations and Experience Management
      • Role of Internet in Marketing
      • Pricing and Cost Structure
      • Stakeholders, Sustainability, & TB

Remember, we are not looking for a monograph on marketing management, nor for a series of definitions, nor for a summary of the material covered in the module nor even a new marketing strategy for the chosen organisation.

Overall we shall be marking the application of each of the concepts, references and, finally, the quality as a paper. The paper should be 3,500 words +/- 10%.

You would be well advised to use the following resources posted in the syllabus:

  • Guidelines for Assessments presentation in the Unit 3, Unit 8 and Overview tabs
  • Writing Academic Papers. See the Overview Unit for the Video by Dr Damary
  • Points about English. See the Overview Unit for this short document
