One person needs to be in charge to man- age the program and make sure that roles and responsibilities are clear and that schedules and budgets are understood. The management duties include the following: Communication with the marketing team, the airport's governing entity, and other stakeholders Assignment of roles and responsibilities to staff, volunteers, and other participating organizations Milestones to gauge progress of the SMART objectives Review Although it is possible to write much more about executing the plan, the fact is that managing a marketing program is just like managing many other multi-phased projects that airport managers have experience doing. 57
