In the tradition of the bestselling The Discipline of Market Leaders, business professors and consultants Banwari Mittal and Jagdish N. Sheth describe a dynamic new value-based approach to achieving market dominance they call ValueSpace—the space that great companies create to deliver their customers the greatest value. Based on the findings of an in-depth study for the prestigious Marketing Science Institute of the top 10 companies on Fortune’s Most Admired Companies list, Mittal and Sheth show that value is the “missing link” in achieving enduring customer loyalty, and that the three main components of customer value are performance, price, and service. With the help of fascinating case studies from UPS, 3M, Caterpillar, Xerox, Fossil, and other “most admireds,” Value Space explains why and how companies in all business sectors that excel at delivering customer value are invariably the market leaders. It outlines a complete program for achieving long-term success by more effectively managing the 9 organizational processes that drive performance, price, and service.

The 4 A S Of Marketing

The authors present a powerful and tested approach that helps managers see a business’s every action through the eyes of its customers. This approach is organized around the values that matter most to customers: Acceptability, Affordability, Accessibility and Awareness. Taken together, these attributes are called the "4A’s." The 4A framework derives from a customer-value perspective based on the four distinct roles that customers play in the market: seekers, selectors, payers and users. For a marketing campaign to succeed, it must achieve high marks on all four A’s, using a blend of marketing and non-marketing resources. The 4A framework helps companies create value for customers by identifying exactly what they want and need, as well as by uncovering new wants and needs. (For example, none of us knew we "needed" an iPad until Apple created it.) That means not only ensuring that customers are aware of the product, but also ensuring that the product is affordable, accessible and acceptable to them. Throughout this book, the authors demonstrate how looking at the world through the 4A lens helps companies avoid marketing myopia (an excessive focus on the product) as well as managerial myopia (an excessive focus on process). In fact, it is a powerful way to operationalize the marketing concept; it enables managers to look at the world through the customer’s eyes. This ability has become an absolute necessity for success in today’s hyper-competitive marketplace.

Some recovered. Some are struggling mightily to recover. Some are dead or, in all likelihood, soon will be. Why?

Why do so many good companies engage in self-destructive behavior? This book identifies seven dangerous habits even well-run companies fall victim to–and helps you diagnose and break these habits before they destroy you. Through case studies from some of yesterday’s most widely praised corporate icons, you’ll learn how companies slip into “addiction” and slide off the rails...why some never turn around...and how others achieve powerful turnarounds, moving on to unprecedented levels of success. You’ll learn how an obsession with volume leads inexorably to rising costs and falling margins...how companies fall victim to denial, myth, ritual, and orthodoxy... how they start wasting vital energy on culture confl ict and turf wars...how they blind themselves to emerging competition...how they become arrogant, complacent, and far too dependent on their traditional competences. Most important, you’ll find specific, detailed techniques for “curing”–or, better yet, preventing–every one of these self-destructive habits. The “cocoon” of denial Find it, admit it, assess it, and escape it The stigma of arrogance Escape this fault that “breeds in a dark, closed room” The virus of complacency Six warning signs and five solutions The curse of incumbency Stop your core competencies from blinding you to new opportunities The threat of myopia Widen your view of your competitors–and the dangers they pose The obsession of volume Get beyond “rising volumes and shrinking margins” The territorial impulse Break down the silos, factions, fiefdoms, and ivory towers
