Description

Control has long been recognized as one of the tasks a manager must perform. The objective of this paper is to detail the steps involved for marketing control from a retail managers point of view. There is an abundance of literature that deals with control and especially marketing control. Yet there is very little specific information for retail managers to follow. This paper discusses why marketing control is necessary in the retail firm and then gives an in-depth view of the marketing control process. It also attempts to show how effective marketing control in retailing may help the retailer to survive in a rapidly changing environment in Southern Africa today.
