Outlining unique steps to create and deliver a successful marketing strategy in any organization and to improve your own a personal impact as a marketer - The Marketing Manifesto is an innovative and highly practical title that crystallizes how professional marketers can create a goal-oriented personal and company strategy, and achieve the competitive advantage through correct marketing practice.
