CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENTThe referral assignment Write a 3000 word report, which applies relationship marketing theory to address a problem, opportunity or other issue in an organisation of your choice. This may be a reworking of your original submission, or a completely new piece of work. You must also submit a reflective statement of not more that 500 words, saying how you have responded to the marker?s feedback on your original submission. Items for Submission There are two items for submission: 1. A 500 word reflective statement that accounts for 10% of the marks in this module. 2. A 3000 word report that accounts for 90% of the marks in this module.For students who did not previously submit an assignment, the report will account for 100% of the marks in this module.FURTHER GUIDANCE Areas to be covered in the reflective statement The reflective statement should identify the key points of feedback given by the marker of the original assignment, and identify how the assignment has been changed to address this feedback. Where a completely new company or relationship issue has been chosen, the statement should explain the rationale for this decision. Assessment criteria for the reflective statement The reflective statements will be assessed on the extent to which they show the ability to: 1. Analyse the feedback given by the marker of the original submission 2. Critically evaluate the original submission in the light of this feedback 3. Identify the changes that have been made to the original assignment 4. Explain how these changes relate to the feedback given by the marker of the original submission Areas to be covered in final reports Each individual report is likely be very different, reflecting the potential variety of topics considered and the parts of the literature which are most relevant to understanding and improving your organisation. This makes it difficult to specify particular headings for the reports in advance. However, each assignment is likely to adopt a process of problem identification, analysis and diagnosis, culminating in a set of recommendations for improving the situation. Consequently, it is suggested that most students cover the following elements in their reports: ? Description of the organisation and important contextual information ? Identification of the customer relationship management issue and a justification of its importance ? A literature review outlining the theoretical approach to defining and addressing the management issue ? Recommendations Assessment Criteria 1. Clearly identify one or more issues of importance to the organisation in its customer relationship management and justify its importance. 2. Demonstrate use of relevant module concepts in the analysis and diagnosis of the situation and in deriving plans for the organisation. The measure of this will be your clear and widespread reference to published sources. Sources that are most relevant and credible will lend greatest weight to argument. Credibility is most readily demonstrated by the use of peer-reviewed sources such as academic journal articles. 3. Analyse the issue(s) using relationship marketing theory, so that the organisation?s understanding of it/them is enhanced. This will provide a clear indication of your intellectual abilities, notably your ability to analyse a situation, critically evaluate sources of information, and come to justifiable conclusions. 4. Produce clear recommendations for the organisation in how to deal with the relationship management issue based upon the treatment. Recommendations should be clearly derived from the treatment you?ve made. Where there are resource implications of the recommendations or specific activities that need to be undertaken as part of them, you should consider these as well. 5. Present an integrated, structured, well-written and grammatically correct report. This is about being more than just cosmetically pleasing. Your report should clearly show the progression of the thought throughout and ensure that arguments are internally consistent. The integration of tasks will be evident in the extent to which the research activity is appropriate for the strategic issues, and the conclusions and recommendations derive from the treatment ? essentially how well it all hangs together.Customer Relationship Management Student Number: Mark: 44Clearly identifies an issue of importance to the organisation in its strategic customer relationship management & justifies its importance.

You also spend a lot of time on the 7ps, which is a model that has limited relevance to relationship marketing theory. My advice would be to start with your first recommendation, defining the company?s issue as an internal marketing one. You could the look at internal marketing theories to identify tools and techniques that could used to develop a set of much more detailed recommendations on HOW the company could improve the productivity and attitude of staff. I?d also recommend that you talk to Tom Bowden-Green or I before you attempt the referral assignment.:
