Summative Assessment Task 1 (Individual) Brief description of assessment task

Each student is to prepare a detailed strategic marketing plan based on a real company's situation.

Prepare and submit a section of the overall strategic marketing plan for the startup business. This is essentially the strategy for an area in marketing the venture.

Please include as appendix your thinking and analysis process/notes/workings when compiling your material to finish this assignment. We want to see your thinking process. These notes are not included in the word count of the assignment.

Detail of student output

There are two outputs for this assessment (see also assessment task 2). The first is a 3,500 word individually prepared, detailed, strategic marketing plan for a real world company that is prescribed by the Unit Chair. Your analysis should be as narrow and deep as possible.

This will be a smaller company with a single brand, single vision with a highly specific target market.

Your task will be to conduct a thorough analysis of the situation and then make detailed recommendations on how the firm should undertake/improve on a single aspect of marketing strategy.

Students are encouraged to take different sections of strategy so that when combined, the output of

See the company brief. This will be done as a

simulation where you will be given a base set of instructions and information. The information that guides your strategy will be updated in the trimester – weeks 4, 6, 8.

Students to form teams – 4 members (see assessment task 2). You will be a part of this company who is pushing to start the business.

Each team member to choose one aspect of strategy only – this becomes your individual report. Choose between (you may suggest other types of marketing strategy):

  • market launch strategy (product introduction)
  • market scaling strategy (early OR late growth), identification of market and

buildout, customer recruitment, services,

the group forms a comprehensive strategic mosaic for the client company. The report will be in a business style (not an academic report, and not an essay) as if you were to send it to the board of directors of the company you have chosen to study. The second output is covered in assessment task 2.

  • product development OR process OR market segment optimisation strategy,
  • market positioning and branding strategy
  • supply chain strategy: supplier recruitment, contractor recruitment and management
  • web strategy

Team members may share some of the background analysis and research. However, you are to assume that you are the lead point person for a specific area with the other members providing a supporting role for your area. In this way, the team works like different founders would in a startup, each leading an area with the support from others, while all work together towards a common goal.

Please check other marking criteria in the rubric (to be provided).
