In seeking to understand this, the interplay across teaching forms that are emblematic of marketing together with the professional preparedness that is integral to this will be explored through interviewing marketing academics. Significantly, this will involve two stages. Firstly, the current situation, as understood by the interviewees, will be explored with this progressing thereafter to exploring amongst these interviewees how SPs could be advanced. The second stage will entail focus groups amongst marketing academics that unpacks their thoughts on the emergent findings with this incorporating pointers for future SP practice within marketing.
