Through good economic times and bad, marketing remains the pivotal function in any business.

It is also a fundamental definition of marketing. This text introduces students to the marketing strategies and tools that practitioners use to market their products.
In my Marketing class, I do a project where students work in groups to "create" a company and a product new to the market that they have to "sell" to the school. The companies have to create an original logo. In creating their logos, I'd have students check the USPTO database to be sure their logo ideas don't match ones already registered in the database. Also, I would get students to use the patent classification system to give their new products a unique name using patent "language".
Developing New Products and Services by Sanders is an outstanding contribution to market research. The book focuses on the upfront activities and ideas for new product and service development.
A central theme of Developing New Products and Services is that there is, or should be, a constant struggle going on in every organization, business, and system between delivering feature-rich versions of products and services using extravagant engineering and delivering low-cost versions of products and services using frugal engineering. Students will come away with this notion and how to manifest it as a contributing employee at any company.
A number of powerful concepts and tools are presented so your students can better understand how to facilitate new product development. For example, three templates are featured that facilitate new product and service development. The FAD (features, attributes, and design) template is used to identify the features and attributes that can be used for product and service differentiation. The Ten–Ten planning process contains two templates: an Organizational and Industry Analysis template and the Business Plan Overview template. These two templates coupled with the FAD template can be used to develop a full-blown business plan.
In addition, Developing New Products and Services includes the following topics: entrepreneurship, technology and product life cycles, product and service versioning, product line optimization, creativity, lock-in real options, business valuation, and project management.
The primary objective is to teach students to do rigorous, explicit, customer-based marketing analysis which is most appropriate for new ventures. Explicit analysis of customers and potential customers, using available data, together with explicit and sensible additional assumptions about customer needs and behavior. Additional course objectives are to teach students about: (a) ways to implement marketing strategies when resources are very limited, and (b) common deficiencies in marketing by entrepreneurial organizations. From course home page: Course Description Educational Objective This course clarifies key marketing concepts, methods, and strategic issues relevant for start-up and early-stage entrepreneurs. At this course, there are two major questions: Marketing Question: What and how am I selling to whom? New Venture Question: How do I best leverage my limited marketing recourses? Specifically, this course is designed to give students a broad and deep understanding of such topics as: What are major strategic constraints and issues confronted by entrepreneurs today? How can one identify and evaluate marketing opportunities? How do entrepreneurs achieve competitive advantages given limited marketing resources? What major marketing/sales tools are most useful in an entrepreneurial setting? Because there is no universal marketing solution applicable to all entrepreneurial ventures, this course is designed to help students develop a flexible way of thinking about marketing problems in general.

Inspired by the Massachusetts Institute of Technologys OpenCourseWare Initiative (OCW) , the Fulbright School has begun to publish its teaching and research materials online. FETP OpenCourseWare is not a long distance learning project, rather it is a resource for people working or studying in policy-related fields to increase their knowledge and explore new approaches to learning and curriculum development. Instructors are encouraged to adopt FETPs curricular materials for use in their own courses. Students may use FETPs materials to guide independent study. Course syllabi, lecture notes, reading lists and problem sets used in many one-year mid-career program and executive education courses are already available online and over time FETP OpenCourseWare will include all Fulbright School materials (subject to copyright law). The Fulbright School participates with other academic institutions in Vietnam to promote the use of innovative long-distance learning activities.
