This course introduces an organisation's marketing purpose. This course has been specifically designed for a dynamic learning journey through guided exploration and practical, interactive activities. The focus is on how organisations identify the target markets and their needs, resources and behaviour to understand the context of various markets. From this base, the course explains and explores how to develop a marketing mix (comprising product, price, promotion and placement) to satisfy the needs and wants of these markets and to create value. While the course has a theoretical base, practical application of the concepts of marketing to 'real-world' situations is an essential element.
