In working with a range of professionals across many industry sectors one often finds it is the technologists and scientists that gain the most out of acquiring skills and knowledge in marketing.  Not only does their structured and analytical approach lend itself to strategic marketing but those skills, combined with a clear customer focus and an innovative approach to the market, can give them the portfolio of skills required for successful leadership.

Deirdre Makepeace, Senior Examiner, CIM

To succeed, products and services must satisfy customers’ needs and wants. Engineers, scientists and technologists need to understand these to develop and deliver better products. This book presents the range of marketing sectors including consumer products, services, international and business to business. Current issues in the marketing environment such as green and social marketing are discussed. Full cover is given to the implementation powerhouse of marketing and the service extended marketing mix. Management skills are needed to implement marketing plans, such as leadership, negotiation and consultancy and these topics are covered in section three. Section four brings all the elements together into three key areas, new product development, market driven quality and marketing plans.

Written by a technologist for technologists this book is essential reading for engineers, scientists and technologists taking a module of business studies or marketing at all levels. It also provides a good foundation of marketing strategy for MBA students with a technical or science first degree.
