3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

In a changing environment, all companies need to orient their strategic approach towards the customer and promote stable relationships with target customers. In the case of start-ups, a priority objective is to make a proper diagnosis of market opportunities and how to make them profitable. A fundamental tool to achieve this objective is the marketing plan. The marketing plan integrates all the activities that make up the marketing process: (1) Analysing market opportunities, (2) Selecting target markets, (3) Defining marketing strategies, (4) Developing the marketing programme, (5) Evaluating results and carrying out marketing audits. The marketing plan is based on the analysis of the market in order to set coherently the objectives, the strategy, the tactical means to be used and the expected results in the different markets in which it operates. The success in the implementation of a new business project will depend to a large extent on the ability of the managers to diagnose the latent needs in the market, to formulate the most appropriate marketing strategy and to develop specific action programmes. In this area, customer relationship management is particularly relevant, applying the principles and tools of Relationship Marketing.
