The 1st module (June 11 & 12) covers the 5Cs of B2B Marketing (Category, Customers, Competitors, Collaborators, and one’s own Company).
- After this module you will be able to apply structure concepts and tools to acquire market information about the 5Cs, which will enable you to develop more effective B2B Marketing Strategies.
The 2nd module (August 6 & 7) covers STP (Segmentation, Targeting, and Positioning) and how to use these concepts to articulate defensible competitive advantage.
- After this module you will understand the true meaning and power of market segmentation, when to use it, and how to do it well in articulating a competitive advantage.
The 3rd module (September 17 & 19) covers developing the integrated Marketing Strategy around the 4Ps (Product, Price Place/distribution and Promotion).
- After this module you will understand the power and relationship of the 4Ps and how they might be adjusted to meet customer segment needs. The most controllable marketing resources available to a firm are the classic 4Ps: Product, Price, Place (distribution), and Promotion (traditional and digital marketing communication). Each of these decisions will be defined and articulated, especially to highlight the way in which target segment customer needs will be met. This will also include a brief introduction to basic marketing metrics to assess customer response to the 4Ps.

In his research, which is essentially phenomenon-driven, Stefan loves interacting and working with B2B marketing practitioners to identify and address managerially relevant research questions. In his role as ISBM Director, his two top priorities are to (1) stimulate more doctoral students and junior faculty to focus on B2B marketing problems and (2) bridge the worlds of B2B marketing practice and academia.
