Markops Online, our interactive Marketing Operations and Strategy software simulation builds participants' marketing analysis and decision making skills. Its consumer goods industry context brings together portfolio management, segmentation, positioning, and traditional marketing mix decisions.
Markops Online effectively illustrates the importance of having a market focus when formulating and implementing successful strategies through:
- Competitive analysis
- Financial analysis
- Brand positioning
- Direct vs. indirect distribution
Individuals and/or participant teams sharpen their marketing and competitive
reflexes as they are challenged to resolve a number of strategic and operational
marketing problems in the context of their simulated firm.
Participants will experience the essential elements of strategic marketing
analysis and decision as they evaluate segment attractiveness, the competition,
and their company's strength and weaknesses.
For the Markops Online user, the pedagogical objectives are to learn and/or refine key marketing concepts at both the operational and strategic levels.
