  • Customer expectations (what do customers want?)

the marketing concept cites from peter drucker
The marketing concept(Cites From Peter Drucker)
  • The only valid definition of business purpose is to create a customer.
  • What the business thinks it is producing is not as important as what the customers think they are buying; what they consider to be ’value’ is decisive.
  • Any business has only two basic functions: marketing and innovation; all the rest are costs.
  • It is not enough to entrust marketing to the sales department.
  • The aim of marketing is to understand the customer so well the product or service fits him or her and sells itself.
  • Marketing is the whole business seen from the point of view of its final result, that is, from the customer’s point of view.
  • “Marketing is too important to be left to marketing people” Frederick E. Webster
markets and competition
Markets and Competition
  • Markets
    • A collection of buyers and sellers who transact over a particular market offering
  • Competition
    • Neoclassical explanation
    • Resource-Advantage explanation (Hunt & Morgan 1995)
neoclassical explanation
  • Perfect competition
    • Demand is homogenous for every industry’s products
    • Consumers assumed to have perfect information (which also is costless)
    • Consumers motivated by utility maximization (self interest)
    • Firms objective profit maximization
  • Role of marketing: ”creators of market imperfections”
resource advantage explanation
  • Reexamines foundations of perfect competition
    • Demand is heterogeneous and dynamic within industries (product classes)
    • Consumers assumed to have imperfect information (and obtaining information comes at a cost)
    • Consumers motivated by constrained self interest
    • Firms objective superior financial performance
  • Role of marketing
    • Market opportunity analysis (identifying needs based on customer value, segments)
    • Selecting target markets
    • Developing marketing strategies to deliver customer value

product concept
Product concept
  • Quality, performance, innovative features, enough to sell products?
  • Defining your business by the product you sell rather than by what your customer needs is the classic “Better Mousetrap” trap. Just because you build it does not mean they will come.
selling concepts
Selling concepts
  • Saturated markets, compete for attention
  • Requires demand stimulation
  • Role of the customer?
societal marketing concept
Societal marketing concept
  • Marketing today includes the obligation to examine societal issues as well
  • Customers have a life after the purchase
marketing myopia

the age of customer capitalism roger martin 2010
The Age ofCustomerCapitalism (Roger Martin, 2010)
  • Managerial capitalism (Berle & Means 1932)
    • Managers substituted for owners – entrepreneurs not good CEOs
  • Customer capitalism (Martin 2010)
shareholder value capitalism
Shareholder value capitalism
  • (Jensen & Meckling 1976, Theory of the Firm: Managerial Behavior, Agency Costs and Ownership Structure)
  • Owners were getting short shrift from professional managers, who enhanced their own financial well-being rather than that of the shareholders. This was bad for shareholders and wasteful for the economy. Hence, CEO’s had to confirm to the idea of maximizing shareholder value. Typically you could see arrangements such as stock-based compensations to align interests of senior managers and shareholders.

Einar Breivik, einar.breivik@nhh.no

customer capitalism
    • Can not simultaneously maximize two different things (shareholder value and customer satisfaction)
      • It is possible to maximize shareholder value given a minimum hurdle for customer satisfaction and vice versa, but not both
  • Shareholder maximization
    • Shareholders have a residual claim on a firm’s assets and earnings
    • Hence, the value of their shares is the discounted value of all future cash flows minus payments to other claimants
    • Since the future is unknowable, potential shareholders must estimate what that cash flow will be, their collective expectations about the future determine the stock price
    • Also, subject to future optimism and pessimism -> Stock markets more volatile than the earnings of the companies in them
    • What should managers do?
  • Satisfaction maximization
    • Focus on customer value
customer satisfaction and financial performance
CustomerSatisfaction and Financial Performance
  • High levels of customer satisfaction grow shareholder value
  • Customer satisfaction positively associated with credit ratings and negatively associated with debt costs
