Highly readable and current, this Canadian casebook provides marketing students with the opportunity to gain valuable experience in marketing case analysis through active participation and discussions. The various activities foster learning through the development of independent thought and creativity, and interpersonal, communication, and decision-making skills. This text features a broad selection of cases of varying length, scope, number and difficulty, chosen to allow for flexibility. While some cases are focused on specific marketing issues, others are comprehensive cases that require a complete analysis. Detailed teaching notes provide useful suggestions for teaching the material at different levels. This collection of 50 cases is drawn from different geographic regions of Canada, covering a wide range of organizations and marketing scenarios. Reflecting current realities in the Canadian market, there is an equal balance between product and services marketing cases as well as cases that deal with marketing within an international context.
