Part of the SpringerBriefs in Business book series (BRIEFSBUSINESS)


Chapters  6 9 introduced the various stages of the process of planning and implementing pop-up activities—Strategic Objectives, Pre Pop-up, the Pop-up Experience, and Post Pop-up—highlighting the decision areas and actions relevant to each particular stage. This chapter revisits the outline framework presented in Fig.  5.1 and incorporates more detail relating to the decision areas and actions in each stage, as outlined in previous chapters, to produce a more comprehensive diagrammatic representation of this process.
