MKTG 390 Marketing Strategy Environmental Scan, SWOT Analysis and Market Potential I was the principle author of this Apple presentation for Marketing Strategy (MKTG 390). A key point is how Apple has disrupted the industry with its Apple Pay. The assignment objectives: Conduct an environmental scan of that industry, develop a market potential forecast 2014 and 2019, and choose a company in that industry and do a SWOT analysis on it. You will need to define and describe the industry precisely (NAISC code) and the geographic scope (U.S., Europe, world), e.g. personal computers in the U.S. Then do an environmental scan (PEST) and develop a market potential forecast for the industry. Then you need to choose a company in the chosen industry and do a SWOT analysis on it, e.g. Dell. You need to present, analyze and document your environmental scan, market potential forecast and SWOT analysis as you would any research paper or report. .
