The fourth edition of the best seller, Market-Led Strategic Change, confronts the real issues companies face in going to market effectively and profitably, including:
* corporate social responsibility
* marketing under siege
* dominant customers and much else besides.

In his witty and direct style, Nigel Piercy takes into account state-of-the-art thinking, including nine new case studies providing invaluable lessons from global firms:
* Tata
* EMI and the music business
* Cloud computing
* Rover cars
* Tesco in the USA
* Mittal and global steel
* One-Laptop-Per-Child.

The book confronts the critical issues now faced in strategic marketing:
* escalating customer demands driving the imperative for superior value
* totally integrated marketing to deliver customer value
* the diffusion of Internet-related issues throughout marketing
* managing processes like planning and budgeting to achieve effective implementation

At once pragmatic, cutting-edge and thought-provoking, Market-Led Strategic Change is essential reading for all managers, students and lecturers seeking a definitive guide to the demands and challenges of strategic marketing in the 21st century.
