    CUSTOMER CENTRICITY: The Limits of Product-Centric Thinking & The Opportunities and Challenges of Customer Centricity
    Module 2 of our class features Professor Peter Fader, who will focus on concepts related to Customer Centricity. In an economy that is increasingly responsive to customer behaviors, it is imperative to focus on the right customers for strategic advantages. The coming weeks will provide the foundation needed to build a customer centric outlook.

    GO TO MARKET STRATEGIES: Online-Offline Interaction & How to Find Lead Users and Facilitate Influence and Contagion
    Professor David Bell takes over this week as we begin our third module! We are shifting focus to the critical topic of "Go to Market Strategies." The "go to market" strategy offers more possibilities than ever before as companies have the potential to address consumers both offline and online through a variety of platforms. Professor Bell has been able to work on these very issues with several exciting startups and will use those experiences to help illustrate this week's material.

    BRANDING: Effective Brand Communications Strategies and Repositioning Strategies

    Professor Kahn is back in this fourth module, the second of her Branding Modules, covering effective brand communications strategies and repositioning strategies. Understanding how customers perceive your brand messaging and marketing is one of the most important aspects to understanding consumer behavior: what consumers perceive is what affects their actions, and what they perceive is not necessarily true! Professor Kahn unpacks customer behavior and perception and explores successful strategies for influencing both in this final required module of the course.

    Applied Marketing (Optional)
    These short lectures apply marketing principles taught in the course to current examples. Content in these lectures may deepen your understanding of course concepts, but won't be tested directly on the quizzes or exam.
