This book represents a contemporary vision of how students will see the global marketplace from tomorrow and beyond. Using a highly innovative three scan framework (competitive, environmental, and marketing), Global Marketing synthesizes both traditional analysis (country risk and company tactical marketing mix decision-making) and non-traditional analysis (political, technological, cultural, and marketing strategy factors). The text discusses issues from NAFTA in Mexico to telecommunications in Europe in a comprehensive analytical framework which also reflects a superior understanding of the global environment. Lamont's text will be one of the first to set criteria for understanding how marketing managers must react from now on.
Douglas Lamont is a consultant and lecturer at Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, USA.
