Marketing Management (MKT5MMA)

Marketing Management (MKT5MMA) Individual Assignment Case Report
You are to prepare a case report as a critical reflection and strategic plan for a company of your choice listed on the
ASX and positioned between the 200-300 level by market capitalisation. This means the company is in the ASX 300,
but not in the ASX 200. Many are emerging companies and seeking growth. A list of the companies is available on the
LMS.
The report can be based on desk research, secondary research and primary research (i.e. ethnographic and
netnographic observation only). Your first task is to provide a critical review of your chosen company and its marketing
strategies (situation analysis). Your critical review is based on synthesizing readings from relevant company reports,
databases, industry and government reports, websites and newspaper articles. Your second task is to analyse
consumer insights about this company and its brands (or a specific brand) and, drawing on the situational analysis
and observational findings, develop a strategic analysis and recommendations.
This individual project allows you to test and advance your ability to understand and analyze a marketing situation,
identify an opportunity, develop a strategic analysis and recommendations. It requires the demonstration of marketing
concepts and strategies. To work on this critical reflection and strategic plan, we suggest you focus on the following
three main activities:
1. analysis of the market situation;
2. marketing strategy formulation;

3.recommendations.
The case will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
·
·
·
·
·
the quality of the analysis — extent of sources and evidence presented?
the detail in the strategic analysis
the feasibility of recommendations — do they follow from the study?
evidence of mastery of the frameworks, concepts, and methods developed in the course
the effectiveness of the written presentation of the report

The Marketing Management (MKT5MMA) course will cover all three areas to be covered in the assignment and will
