Marketing Implementation

By : Chiqui Escareal-Go

SAVE on expensive trial-and-error efforts: 9 out of 10 strategies fail because of poor implementation!

Ask yourself the following questions (Answerable with a Yes or No)

  1. Do I need to gain competitive advantage in execution because of parity offering?

  2. Am I about to launch a new product, a new incentive plan, a new sales requirement?

  3. Am I about to embark on a project that will require organizational or cultural change?

  4. Do I need to get it right the first time?

Just one (1) YES answer makes you a candidate for this program.

Each participant will learn:

  • Skills in designing the most effective marketing implementation program for your marketing strategy

  • Tools for critical support and commitment for ideas

  • A better understanding of what works and what mistakes to avoid in execution

The company will gain:

  • Tools that the team can adopt to increase the organization’s chances of success

  • HR as a key strategic partner in the execution of marketing’s plans

  • A framework to give clarity for the company to take the right direction and identify capability gaps


In a commoditized market, competition can always catch up when it comes to product offerings, price or distribution. What can be an advantage is how your team executes your strategies while utilizing resources effectively to outperform others while providing customers the value they desire at profit-maximizing levels.
