This refers to the execution of marketing strategy developed in the plan. The financial institution will, as part of the planning process, prepare an implementation schedule setting out a program of strategies. This will include start dates and/or completion dates. The strategies listed may also include supply strategies, demand strategies, competition strategies, positioning strategies, segmentation strategies, fundamental marketing strategies, as well as marketing mix strategies.
The implementation plan is of vital importance since marketing failures are much more frequent during operations than during the conceptual and planning stages. It is very easy to assume that operations personnel will provide support and the required effort toward the success. However, such assumption can lead to miscommunication and failure of the strategies. It has been seen that the unavailability of information and inadequate training for field and customer service personnel are two of the many reasons for marketing plan failure. The implementation plan schedule is a great tool to ensure a high degree of success. Below is a sample of implementation schedule:
