Vrontis, Demetris and Pavlou, Pavlos (2008) The external environment and its effect on strategic marketing planning: a case study for McDonald's. Journal for International Business and Entrepreneurship Development, 3 (3/4). p. 289. ISSN 1549-9324Full text not available from this repository.
This case study has been compiled in order to illustrate the effect of the external environment on the international marketing strategy of McDonald's, the fast food chain. An external environmental analysis is necessary, as effective marketing strategies cannot be developed without firstly analysing the environment in which the company operates. The paper analyses a number of the theoretical approaches to strategic planning to be considered in international marketing.
