Marketing Analytics: A Practical Guide to Real Marketing Science
Marketing Analytics arms business analysts and marketers with the marketing science understanding and techniques they need to solve real-world marketing problems, from pulling a targeted list and segmenting data to testing campaign effectiveness and forecasting demand. Assuming no prior knowledge, this book outlines everything practitioners need to ‘do’ marketing science and demonstrate value to their organization. It introduces concepts relating to statistics, marketing strategy and consumer behaviour and then works through a series of marketing problems in a straightforward, jargon-free way. It demonstrates solutions for various data modelling scenarios and includes full workings and critical analyses to reinforce the key concepts.
By starting with the marketing problem and then sharing a series of data modelling options on how to solve it, Marketing Analytics both makes marketing science accessible for beginners and aids the more seasoned practitioner in getting to grips with the trickier technical aspects of data analytics to refine their marketing skills and toolkit and compete more effectively in the marketplace.
Online supporting resources for this book include a bank of test questions as well as data sets relating to a number of chapters.
About the series: The Marketing Science series makes difficult topics accessible to marketing students and practitioners by grounding them in business reality. Each book is written by an expert in the field and includes case studies and illustrations enabling marketers to gain confidence in applying the tools and techniques and in commissioning external research.

Making 21st Century Knowledge Complexes: Technopoles of the world revisited (Regions and Cities)
The world has changed profoundly since the publication of the influential book Technopoles of the World. As policy-makers and practitioners attempt to harness science, technology and innovation to create dynamic and vibrant cities many wonder how relevant Manuel Castells and Peter Hall’s messages are today. Twenty years later, this book returns to their concepts and practices to update their message for the 21st century.
Making 21st Century Knowledge Complexes: Technopoles of the World Revisited argues that the contemporary technopole concept encompasses three new dimensions. Firstly, building synergy between partners is vital for the success of complexes. Secondly, the correct governance arrangements are critical to balance competing interests inevitable in any science city project. Thirdly, new evaluation mechanisms are indispensable in allowing policy-makers to steer their long-term benefits.
Through twelve case study chapters and a detailed comparative analysis, this book provides academics, policy-makers and practitioners with critical insights in understanding, managing and promoting today’s high-technology urban complexes.
