The marketing plan is one of the most important outputs of the marketing process. A good marketing plan provides the direction for the brand and each of its product and service groups. The plan needs to align closely with the business's overall strategy and be clear on objectives, challenges, strategy, priorities, and budget. A poor plan, or a plan with inputs from inexperienced marketing planners, will sow the seeds for confusion, ineffective marketing investment, and missed opportunities.
If you worry that your marketing plans are less than best in class, then Imparta's Marketing and Strategy Programmes will raise your marketers' planning skills. The programmes draw on a range of strategic marketing tools and concepts to help participants consider ways to improve competitor analysis, boost the understanding of the issues shaping their marketing plans, and drive value innovation in their markets. We can also help to embed planning capabilities for the long term.
