Hooley (Aston Business School) and Piercy (Warwick Business School) examine the role of marketing in strategy development, the selection of target markets, and different competitive positioning strategies. The approach emphasizes the new responsibility that organizations are defining for marketing as a strategic force rather than just as an operational department. The fourth edition adds three chapters on new technological opportunities, strategic customer management, and corporate social responsibility.
