Vous allez découvrir les mécanismes à l’œuvre derrière les grandes décisions qui relèvent du marketing opérationnel :

  • la conception d’un produit
  • la fixation du prix auquel celui-ci sera vendu
  • la sélection des canaux de distribution pour la vente
  • le choix des moyens de communication par lesquels l’entreprise va informer ses clients.

Ces décisions s’appuient bien sûr sur des analyses mobilisant des concepts importants que nous vous présenterons. Tout au long du MOOC, vous aurez l’occasion d’appliquer la théorie à une étude de cas réel qui vous placera dans la peau d’un décideur marketing. Vous bénéficierez aussi d’interviews d’experts et d’échanges privilégiés et interactifs avec les professeurs lors de conférences en direct.

Tous les jours, consommez-vous des biens ou des services ? Ce MOOC vous permettra de saisir la logique du marketing et de devenir un consommateur plus responsable.

Etes-vous un praticien non encore averti en marketing ? Ce MOOC vous permettra de comprendre le pourquoi des décisions du marketing opérationnel et de les mettre en œuvre dans un cas concret.

Etes-vous étudiant et curieux ? Ce MOOC vous permettra de vous familiariser avec les pratiques du marketing, dans les secteurs marchands et non marchands.

Etes-vous un étudiant en gestion ? Ce MOOC vous offrira un complément aux cours de stratégie et de marketing stratégique. Il vous permettra d’opérationnaliser les décisions dans quatre composantes classiques à savoir le produit, la distribution, le prix et la communication (les « 4 P »).

Que vous soyez consommateur, praticien ou étudiant, ce MOOC vous offrira un regard éclairé sur l’éthique du marketing.

Avec le partenariat des éditions Dunod pour l'ouvrage Lambin, J.-J., & de Moerloose, C. (2012). Marketing stratégique et opérationnel. Du marketing à l'orientation-marché (8ème édition).


This class will provide you with an overview of the various dimensions of operational marketing (marketing decisions). These decisions concern product development, setting of a price for this product, selecting one or several distribution channels and finally communication tools in order to promote this product. Of course, these decisions rest on conceptual concepts that we will also present. You will have the opportunity to concretely apply course content through weekly case studies for which you will play the role of a manager. This MOOC provides content through videos, quiz, expert interviews, a forum, discussion (hangouts) and additional readings.

To consumers, this class will offer you an understanding of the logic behind marketing and it will enable you to become a more aware and responsible consumer.

To practitioners with no marketing background, this MOOC will enable you to understand the reasoning behind marketing decisions and to apply this reasoning in real situations.

To students with no business background, this MOOC will help you to become familiar with marketing practices both in commercial and non-profit marketing and to understand and analyze important operational decisions in marketing.

To business students, this MOOC will be complementary to strategy and marketing strategy classes. It will enable you to operationalize decisions using the 4 ‘P’s’: Price, Product, Place and Promotion.

To everybody involved in this MOOC, the ethical issues in Marketing will be highlighted.

There are underlying fundamental principles and concepts that apply to all supply chains, which can be expressed in relatively straightforward models. However, to actually implement them across a real supply chain requires the use of technology across multiple systems. Supply chains have a long history of using technology to improve efficiency and effectiveness. The shear scale and scope of most supply chains require many distinct systems to interact with each other.

Unfortunately, technology is a moving target. It is constantly evolving and improving so that today’s technology is outdated within a few years or months. Rather than focusing on a specific software system, this business and management course will focus on three aspects: fundamental concepts, core systems, and data analysis.

We will start with the introduction of fundamental concepts that are used in all software tools. We will cover IT fundamentals, including project management and software processes, data modeling, UML, relational databases and SQL. We will also introduce Internet technologies, such as XML, web services, and service-oriented architectures. No prior programming experience required.

We will then provide an overview of the main types of supply chain software including ERP, WMS, and TMS systems. We will describe their main functionality, how they work, how they are used, their architecture, data flows, and how they are organized into modules. We will also cover the software selection process and how software upgrade and implementation projects should be organized and managed.

Finally, we will dive into data analysis that is core to all large supply chains. We will introduce visualization and big data analysis techniques that are used in practice today.

As entrepreneur or innovator you are trained to run fast, but… are you running in the right direction?

Choosing the right market for your innovation is the biggest, and trickiest, question for innovators. Research has shown that all too often entrepreneurs don’t spend enough time identifying and researching their market opportunities – instead they jump at the first opportunity that looks good, and fail to properly evaluate and leverage other opportunities. This common mistake often leads them to choose the wrong market or lock themselves into one specific direction.

In this course, you will learn how to set a promising strategy, by using a business tool called the Market Opportunity Navigator.

This tool offers an easy to apply framework to better identify, evaluate and focus on the right market opportunities.

It  encompasses three simple steps, with dedicated worksheets to guide you through the process:

  1. Search broadly-  to generate your set of market opportunities
  2. Assess deeply- to evaluate your options and compare their attractiveness
  3. Strategize smartly- to focus on the most attractive opportunity while remaining agile

This structured tool works for entrepreneurs and managers in established companies, when-ever they need to plan or rethink their strategy.
