Kongsberg Maritime is a global technology company who creates innovative and reliable solutions for maritime customers all over the world. Together we make up for 7300 employees spread out over 34 countries, and we have managed to deliver our products to over 30 000 vessels worldwide.

The case:

Besides construction and sales of products aimed for vessel propulsion, we see the need to create new marketing material and develop the marketing strategy for our Promas product, which is a complement to the propeller, used for increased efficiency. We need to find new and smart methods, material and channels of communicating our product in a way that compares to the world class products we deliver. The over-all goal for the case is to create and harmonize marketing material throughout our organization, so that it may function as a go to standard in promoting the Promas.

Output:

The work for the thesis will be aimed towards creating new ideas of marketing the product e.g. videos and other advertising materials. You will conduct benchmarks in both our own branch as well as other comparative branches in order to generate ideas and have a marketing strategy that is up to date. In order to create a harmonized way of communicating our product both internally and externally we also expect you to present ideas and methods of how to reach out in the best way, together with the product sales pitch.

Main areas of focus:

  • Conduct research on available marketing material 
  • Conduct benchmarking in order to map out the marketing situation and get new ideas
  • Generate new marketing material and sales pitch for the Promas product
  • Find new ways in communicating the Product both internally and externally

You will also have support and guidance during the rest of the period, but the processes and work itself is up to you to execute. For the most part it will be your own responsibility to solve the featured case (or thesis problem) and get in touch with different roles and functions across the organization.
