MARKETING ASSESSMENT AND RESOURCE KIT™
You know that, as companies evolve from the start-up stage to
the mature market leadership stage, their marketing resources
must also evolve. Unfortunately, many high-tech companies mistakenly
believe that all they need to succeed is an innovative engineering
organization and a strong sales force. These companies ultimately
succumb to the competitive pressure to hire and increase marketing
program dollars, but when they do, they often act without any
clear plan or set of priorities.
That's where you and the MARKit method
comes into play. The MARKit
method streamlines the assessment process in three easy steps:
- Step 1. Initiate a market readiness
assessment using the MARKit method.
Subjects of inquiry can
include marketing human resources, marketing and sales collateral
and related activities as well as product
management plans and documents.
- Step 2. Using the analysis output from the
MARKit method, prepare a detailed
report outlining any identified gaps and making appropriate
and prioritized recommendations.
- Step 3. Present the findings to the organization being evaluated.
The output from the MARKit method is based on a best-in-class Five-Stage Growth
Segmentation Model developed by Cambridge. The Five-Stage model, its associated
industry benchmark knowledge base and the MARKit method allows the
MARKit solution to compare and contrast a
client's marketing organization to those of other similar companies within
the same industry, and business growth stage.
The value of the MARKit method is in its ability to quickly assess a marketing
organization and provide actionable information in a very short
period of time. Cambridge was able to develop the software because
of its primary research into the marketing practices of hundreds
By compiling the data from surveyed companies and
applying the Five-Stage Growth Segmentation Model, the Cambridge
knowledge base acts as a benchmarking tool that Consultants can
use to inform and validate their recommendations, and win support
for proposed projects.
