Strategic Market Management: European Edition

Description:    The European edition of Strategic Market Management has been prepared with the objective of
                taking David Aaker’s outstanding and well-established textbook and presenting it to a European
                audience. It retains the culture of the original text, to maintain its accessibility and continue its
                emphasis on practical action. It has also kept the compactness, which has made it so popular with
                graduate and executive students and managers, while keeping a comprehensive coverage of major
                and emerging themes in strategy. The core value of the original text, that the development,
                evaluation and implementation of business strategies are essential to successful management, is
                also retained in the European edition.

                The book is essential reading for any management or business school course that focuses on the
                management of strategies. It is especially appropriate for marketing strategy, strategic
                management and business policy courses. It is also designed to be used by managers who need to
                develop strategies or who run a small business and want to improve their strategy development
                and planning processes.
