Exactly what executives and senior staff require: A practical, repeatable methodology for effective, sustainable market planning and measurement. Here is a process for synchronizing all of those seemingly overly complex, costly marketing teams and tasks with the company's real objectives and strategy.

This concise book is invaluable to sales and marketing staffs: In one resource, it provides the context and tools needed to formulate and implement effective marketing plans, regionally or globally, based on the true sum of the organization's capabilities. Senior executives will see that it also presents the frameworks necessary to establishing a common methodology and language of market assessment, planning and measurement that transcend the "sales and marketing department", incorporating all departments in the active development and identification of true market differentiators and opportunities.

The success of a product or service is determined by the power of its business model. Professor Chernev establishes the foundation for establishing, evaluating, and tuning the business model by introducing the "G-STIC" framework. The book excels in presenting the hard questions that must be addressed in order to truly develop and test a business model relative to its Goals, Strategy, Tactics, Implementation, and Controls (G-STIC). There is no hiding. Weakness and strengths are quickly revealed.

Since sustained business success can only be achieved by optimizing the value to relevant parties, Professor Chernev then provides a methodology that forces the organization to consider exactly what value its offering creates for customers, collaborators, and itself.

Strategic Marketing Management by Alexander Chernev helps bring together all of the major tools required in the field of marketing into a single source. The book offers both a practical toolkit of strategic marketing frameworks, as well as practical examples on how they can be applied to create value for customers, collaborators, and the company. Overall I found the book easy and interesting to read, as well as a frequently used reference toolkit.

Chernev's book helps shed light on Marketing being more than just an art based on intuition and creativity. Marketing also requires use of scientific and analytic tools which can be used to provide credibility to senior management, stakeholders, and collaborators.

The book is a must read for anyone involved with marketing, or executives which an understanding of how to maximize value for the company, customers, and collaborators. Consider the risks when things go wrong?

Using approaches from the book, I worked with a team to launch a quantitative study into measuring the entertainment value and marketing value of Super Bowl Ads. Our findings were surprising. While viewers may have been entertained by a particular Super Bowl ad, preference for some brands actually decreased following air of the Super Bowl ad. Imagine paying millions of dollars for an ad, only to see customers preference for your brand decrease in some cases. The book offers valuable frameworks to help you or your company avoid these missteps.

A company's main focus should be maximizing value for customers, collaborators, and the company, it and this book will give you the tools you need to know.

Professor Chernev's approach to Strategic Marketing is indeed a fresh rarity. A typical Marketing textbook is thick and filled with countless acronyms, that at the end tend to leave impression of being obscure or irrelevant to be applied in the real world.

Chernev's approach is direct. He stimulates critical thinking throughout his discussions & guide his audience to always think outside their perspective silo. His didactic approach is to distill and discuss core principles that can be found in every real business scenario.

Of all the great concepts he discussed, I am particularly fond of the "Five C's" framework. This framework is not just relevant for approaching business problems, but can function as critical lenses when approaching any situations in life in general.

The book is a gem not to be missed by business executives, IT professionals, or anyone else who appreciates good writing & strategic thinking. Highly recommended!!

There are no wasted words in this treatment of Strategic Marketing Management; every page exudes marketing technique and/or insight presented in a concise manner. The frameworks are revealed in such a logical fashion that marketing management almost unveils itself as an understandable storyline. The book flows so nicely from one topic or tool to the next, the multitude of concepts isn't overwhelming. Even the book's index highlights concepts, frameworks, and brand examples separately. The author probably knows this book will serve as a favorite reference text and the chosen index breakdown allows one to zero-in on particular sections.

The concepts presented appeal to a much larger audience than the title suggests. In combination with the frameworks, multiple disciplines can benefit from the practical advice. It is much more than an enumeration of best practices for marketing management but more a recipe for effective implementation using a structured set of tools. In fact, I have applied a subset of the author's insight to Lean methodology. Any where customer focus (external or internal) is key, this book speaks well in strategically helping projects succeed including situation analysis, managing value, and tweaking business models. I have found the author's tactics and alignment strategy very helpful in my daily work; I really value this book.
