This essay attempts to structure a forward-looking approach to the evolving role of marketing in today's economy. Many organisations today recognize the need to become more market responsive in the global and interconnected market in which they operate.
Market-Driven Management adopts a broad approach to marketing, integrating the strategic and operational elements of the discipline. Lambin's unique approach reflects how marketing operates empirically, as both a business philosophy and an action-oriented process. Motivated by the increased complexity of markets, globalisation, deregulation, and the development of e-commerce, the author challenges the traditional concept of the 4Ps and the functional roles of marketing departments, focusing instead on the concept of market orientation. The book considers all of the key market stakeholders, arguing that developing market relations and enhancing customer value is the responsibility of every me...
Strategic Marketing Management is a post-introductory text in Marketing which is thoroughly European - the French language edition is already the best-selling marketing textbook in France. Comprising sixteen chapters carefully structured within five parts, this book offers innovative and comprehensive coverage of strategic marketing management. In Part 1 the distinction between operational marketing and strategic marketing is made, and the reader is shown why, in the new European macromarket, strategy is most important and why the entire organization must be market-oriented. Part 2 opens with an analysis of the needs of individuals and organizations in order to establish the buyer's purchase and response behaviour, and examines the vital role of market research in this process. Part 3 is devoted to the tasks of strategic marketing. Part 4 looks closely at issues of implementation. Finally, in Part 5 there are fifteen topical case studies with follow-up questions which have been specially selected to illustrate and examine a wide range of strategic marketing management issues.
For years, I have been impressed by how dynamic markets are. Marketing strategies are rarely successful without adjustments over time, and marketing managers need constantly to monitor, and anticipate when possible, important changes in the marketing environment, so that they can adapt their marketing strategies to changing market conditions. It strikes me as important that the dynamic elements of marketing be modeled and studied, and a significant part of my research activity has been dedicated to exploring the nature and implications of dynamic marketing strategies. The marketing field has used various models and methodologies in the attempt to understand dynamic markets. I must thank my dissertation advisor, Dave Montgomery at Stanford, for originally turning my attention toward time-varying parameter models some 14 years ago. From that plat form, I have proceeded to search for models that capture the essence of dynamic marketing, as well as for methodological tools, empirical as well as analytical, that allow insightful study of such models.
Este libro expone con amplitud y precisión los conceptos, cuestiones y procesos relativos al marketing estratégico, cuyos objetivos en palabras del autor, son el análisis continuo y sistemáticos de las necesidades del mercado.
