The marketing results can be ruined when the management team locks in the wrong marketing strategy for the company.

That’s why the book’s content is based on two different models.

This model also allows the company to redefine its strategy when the company, industry, or competitive situation encounters change.

Together, these models help the company:

  1. Create a winning marketing strategy

  3. Take its business to the era of digital sales we live in.
