How are digital media (ecommerce, marketing) social media and bloggers affecting Burberry’s communications & marketing strategy and how they deliver customer experience?

MOST IMPORTANT: Given all the analysis you have done so far (strategic analysis, the external and internal, dilemmas) – what are FIVE recommendations you would make to Burberry’s senior leadership team making sure to “connect the dots” to how this solves SPECIFIC issues you have uncovered.
Be sure to look at your own analyses above and come with issues to tackle and detail how your ideas may make an impact.
Important notes:
Do not use any outside research whatsoever.
All research is contained within the case PDF. Please provide your own, original analysis.
Any use of outside research, discussion with anyone (including classmates) will result in a failing grade
Case studies are from the perspective of the information in the case. If you know in real life what Burberry ended up doing you cannot use this information. You are only to use information in the case to perform analysis or make recommendations.
References should be made to material taken from the case. (if you cite the case, mention the citation as you would any source that is not your own ideas).
Here is important information that WILL IMPACT YOUR GRADE throughout this course.
Covid-19 / Pandemic impacts on strategy
You will usually be asked to make a minimum 3 strategic recommendations in most assignments. The pandemic is NOT to be a core part of your strategic analysis UNTIL AFTER you have provided 3 examples that examine the business without regards to the pandemic.
IF you choose to make Covid a central point, it will need to be your 4th recommendation (3 recs need to be non-pandemic related)
The reason / the “Why”: While the pandemic has clearly had global impact, it is vital you learn to analyze businesses, markets and strategies without only looking at the pandemic alone. The pandemic is a somewhat rare event and we want to make sure we exercise other forms of situational and strategic analysis as well.
Grade impact: You will lose as much as a full grade level if your analyses all hinge on the pandemic alone.
Sustainability & influencer strategies are a given, mentioning them without research and market insights is the worst form of leadership… therefore they are NOT allowed unless specifically directed.
If you want to use them, ask in advance and let’s decide if there’s a strategic reason backing their use
If they are specifically requested then they will be relevant to your answers and encouraged
The reason / the “Why”: Students have tended to simply use influencers or sustainability as suggested business strategies with no research or data backing them. Analyzing the impacts of sustainability is encouraged IF you are willing to do the research to back it up.
If it matters to the business or to you then contact me in advance at lmonty@fidm.edu and let’s vet whether you are strategically applying sustainability.
Obligatory use of “sustainability” or “influencer” will result in points loss – as much as a grade level
Never use first person (I, me, myself) in class writings. They will result in immediate loss of a grade level
The reason / The “Why”: We are here to write as future leaders so let’s “level up” our discourse such that we communicate at the most senior level possible.
SPECIAL TIP: The answer is always…. always… always start with the consumer (namely customer segments) and creating value for them.
Value creation is always our goal
ALWAYS FOCUS ON SEGMENTS… become “customer obsessed”
Remember – demographics are not segments – we want to include everyone who shares the same drive and passion and demographics alone will rarely, if ever, capture those drivers. (see video for more commentary)
