Strategic Marketing for the C-Suite examines the relevance of academic research to the most senior levels of the marketing profession, the chief marketing officer (CMO), and the interests of their C- suite colleagues, particularly those of the chief executive officer (CEO) and chief financial officer (CFO). Unless academic research is relevant at the C-suite level, it is unlikely to be paid much attention lower down the organization. Strategic Marketing for the C-Suite has three objectives: (1) to understand what we can learn from recent academic research on strategic marketing, (2) to test the validity of earlier editorial positions, and (3) to make some modest suggestions as to what the field might do better in the future. The author addresses these objectives through a review of the academic research on a set of strategic marketing issues that are of relevance to top executives. Strategic Marketing for the C-Suite is structured in four steps. First, it examines the meaning of the phrase strategic marketing to help define the scope of the literature review and the role of the CMO in the firm, drawing on both the academic and practitioner literature. The second step identifies the key domains and associated issues that are currently relevant to the CMO and C-suite including the value of marketing to the firm, managing the new digital market space, achieving profitable growth through innovation, marketing capabilities as a source of competitive advantage, and addressing society's major concerns. The third step reviews the marketing literature relating to these five domains, and, in doing so, identifies the key research themes within each domain, and draws conclusions on these themes and overall conclusions on the domain itself. The fourth and final step summarizes what we learn from a decade's worth of research on strategic marketing, draws conclusions on the validity of earlier research, and discusses the implications for the field of academic marketing.
Marketing for Tourism, Hospitality & Events highlights the shifts in tourism demographics with particular emphasis on the role of digital technology and its impact on travel products and services. The authors look at a broad range of topics including contemporary tourism marketing, understanding today's consumer, successful tourism products and services and the importance of public relations and personal selling. This is supported by a collection of chapter specific international case-studies that highlight the realities of tourism and hospitality marketing in practice, these include: ? * Spiritual Tourism in Tamil Nadu * The Deer Hunt Festival, Winneba, Ghana * Music-themed hotels in Prague, Amsterdam, Berlin and Mexico * Promoting Hawaii Through Film and Television * Martinhal Beach Resort, Portugal * Dark Tourism in Vietnam To further enhance the text, the authors have included three key features in each chapter: Lessons from a Marketing Guru; Digital Spotlight and Marketing in Action; all of which use examples and case studies from across the industry, providing added depth to the subject. The book is complimented by a companion website featuring a range of tools and resources for lecturers and students, including PowerPoint slides, an instructors manual and selected videos to make the examples in each chapter come to life. Ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students looking for an introductory text to marketing for tourism, hospitality and events.

Digital phase lock loops are critical components of many communication, signal processing and control systems. This exciting new book covers various types of digital phase lock loops. It presents a comprehensive coverage of a new class of digital phase lock loops called the time delay tanlock loop (TDTL). It also details a number of architectures that improve the performance of the TDTL through adaptive techniques that overcome the conflicting requirements of the locking rage and speed of acquisition. These requirements are of paramount importance in many applications including wireless communications, consumer electronics and others. Digital Phase Lock Loops then illustrates the process of converting the TDTL class of digital phase lock loops for implementation on an FPGA-based reconfigurable system. These devices are being utilized in software-defined radio, DSP-based designs and many other communication and electronic systems to implement complex high-speed algorithms. Their flexibility and reconfigurability facilitate rapid prototyping, on-the-fly upgradeability, and code reuse with minimum effort and complexity. The practical real-time results, of the various TDTL architectures, obtained from the reconfigurable implementations are compared with those obtained through simulations with MATLAB/Simulink. The material in this book will be valuable to researchers, graduate students, and practicing engineers.
This textbook gives in depth and comprehensive coverage of key marketing principles applied to tourism and hospitality. Over 70 global case studies and vignettes colorfully illustrate how these concepts work in practice and demonstrate the diverse range of tourism and hospitality products on offer. Readers are also introduced to contemporary marketing issues such as internet marketing and branded entertainment.Tourism and Hospitality Marketing is accompanied by a website that offers lecturers answers to the discussion questions and exercises in the book, case study questions, a test bank, power point slides, and a list of additional teaching resources.
