Is the article/report about a new product launch? Is the organization revamping a current product? Does the article report on a marketing attempt gone bad? Has a product been an unexpected success without proper distribution plans (is it back ordered, in short supply)? Etc.

•         What makes you sure this is a marketing issue? (Be specific with your reasoning)

•         What macroenvironmental issues led to the current situation?

•         Do you predict recovery (if a negative) or success (if a new launch or revamping of a current product)?

•         Based on what you’ve learned, is the organization handling this marketing issue appropriately?

Present your analysis in APA format.

This assignment is due by Day 7 of Week 4, and is worth 50 points. Submit to the Assignments folder.
