How the assessment fits into the subject/course: st
Marketing in the 21 Century has drastically evolved and is a critical component of business administration. The design of marketing plans is integral to business organisation and the assessment for this subject aims to provide students with the opportunity to apply the knowledge of developing effective marketing strategies. This assessment requires the students to analyse market trends before developing a marketing strategy. There is a short scenario for
students to address the assessment tasks.
MKT600_Assessment 1_Case Study Report Page 1 of 6 Linkages between Assessments 1 and 2:
Assessment 1 requires students to create a case study and review marketing plans. Specifically, assessment 1 requires students to establish the context through analysing market trends. Assessment 2 requires students to devise a marketing plan of products or services offered by their own organisation and to consider how the marketing plan will add value to their organisation.
This assessment task requires you to develop a Marketing Environmental Analysis. A Marketing Environmental Analysis of the microenvironment and macro environment is key to understanding the possible impact of any external local, national or international factors on a small business. These factors tend to be outside a business owner’s direct control, however, as you have seen, business and marketing strategies can be modified to take advantage of the opportunities they present while also minimising any potential threats.
Therefore, in this assessment task you will need to:
• Demonstrate your learning about marketing concepts and principles covered so far and allow yourself to demonstrate your level of understanding of them.
• Analyse the link between marketing practice and marketing theory
• Demonstrate research skills to reveal the insights
• Apply appropriate business report writing skills
• Use the appropriate citation of references and a reference list in your written work. It is essential that you use the appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research. Please see more information on referencing here:
• Practise aligning strategies to your market analysis
Choose any small business wanting to either expand through a new product development or a new market entry (locally and/or internationally)
1. Discuss the buyer behaviour in relation to your chosen business

3. Summarise the likely competitors, what they offer and who they seem to target
4. Analyse the macro environment. What are the society-wide influences on chocolate products? Are there demographic, economic, natural, technological, political, or cultural trends that will affect the business?
Note: Take the time to find good quality references to support your ideas, suggestions and explanations using marketing theory in your report. Use headings/sub-headings, as you must write a formal document.
