Much has been written about satisfaction research in the last 20 years. But only recently has the seeming disconnection between customer satisfaction and customer loyalty been getting increasing attention. For two years, Campbell-Ewald1
, the Detroit-based marketing communications company and part of the global Interpublic Group of Companies, studied one aspect of the disconnection: respect. As a result of its findings, the agency is passionate about helping firms reforge respect bonds with their customers as a primary business strategy.
Campbell-Ewald is no stranger to this concept, which the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, elevated to the measurable standard for relationships. Twice in this millennium, the agency has been selected by AdWeek’s Midwest edition as its Agency of the Year. In lauding CampbellEwald,
AdWeek noted that it has an average client relationship exceeding 20 years, while the average in the industry is a relationship that lasts only 5.3 years.2
David Lockwood, senior vice president and director of account planning, says what started as an attempt to understand the disconnect grew into a major research initiative. It ultimately resulted in the identification of five “People Principles” for maintaining long-term relationships that are helping Campbell-Ewald clients transform their business practices and their sales:3
• Appreciate me. Customers are the reason a firm is in business; they should be made to feel appreciated.
• Intentions don’t matter; actions do. What a firm does is important, not what it thinks or what it says it will do.
• Listen, then you’ll know what I said. Companies that listen to customers have the ability to adjust plans. Companies shouldn’t just collect information but should actually take direction from what customers say.
• It’s about me, not about you. What the customer needs is more important than…...

Org. Behavior-the New Vice President

...Case Study: The New Vice President Part A 1. At this point, what are your predictions about Jennifer as interim vice president? Jennifer seems to be a qualified choice. She is familiar with the University, has good relationships, and appears to have the appropriate back round that qualifies her for the position. It is difficult to predict at this point due to several factors. 1) Will her relationships with her coworkers affect her decisions where they are concerned? 2) How will she work with the new President, who she barely knows. At this point, It appears Jennifer will have some transitioning, but there does not seem to be anything that would drastically keep her from growing into her new position. 2. What do you predict will be her management/leadership style? Jennifer's leadership style looks like it will follow in the mold of consideration. She has strong interpersonal relationships with her now subordinates and will likely focus on maintaining those relationships as part of her style. While this can be a good thing, Jennifer will have to make sure that her new subordinates also accept her authority. 3. What are her strengths and weaknesses? What is the basis for this assessment? Jennifer's strengths will be her familiarity with the University, the relationships she has developed, and her dedication she has demonstrated to the University. Her weaknesses will be the transition into her new position and how that may affect colleagues who are now......

Executive Vice President - Automotive Product Strategy and Development

...customers. Another cause of Dealer mis-trust of OEMs has been when “cross-brand” promotions have been used, so that a Dealer’s customers have been invited to change to a brand which they do not sell. · Some systems make special provision for this, e.g. UCS introduced a “Household” record in its DMS - before it acquired R&R.. With businesses and fleets, the “customer” varies dependent on the situation. For example... · But OEMs have cause for frustration when they generate leads for Dealers, and no response is made or is unreasonably slow. It may be appropriate to aim “CRM” for Sales and Service at the driver of each vehicle, even though the business buys them. Comment: The relationships between OEMs and their Dealers, and vice versa, are at times very sensitive, with “CRM” being very high on the list of issues which need to be carefully managed. 1.9. What about the customer? A basic problem for all of those in automotive retailing who must implement “CRM”, is that there is no “100% standard customer”. · However... · If the business or fleet has a central buyer, it may be more appropriate to aim “CRM” for Sales at the buyer, and for Service at the individual drivers if they are responsible to ensuring that their vehicles are maintained. This is expecially unfortunate for OEMs who would like - for good reasons - to implement a “Standard CRM” strategy internationally. It is necessary to categorise customers precisely, so that the correct “CRM”......

Role of Account Planning

...------------------------------------------------- Role of Account Planning in growing a brand… ------------------------------------------------- In the business of building brands and making them part of consumers lives, the role of planning becomes invincible. ------------------------------------------------- To me one of the most important things that planning does is, uncovering where the brand lives in the consumers’ mind. It makes use of research tools such as ethnographies, focus groups or quantitative/social studies to ask consumers what they think about the brand, or how they use the product or service. But, planning is not just a research function; it truly begins when the research ends. ------------------------------------------------- Planning takes into account various strategic frameworks, models to create brand propositions & communication plans by integrating consumer sensibilities. The work of the planer is to stay true to what the TG is thinking, believing or doing. I strongly believe communication ideas which are embedded with true consumer insights can make the brands relevant for the consumers and therefore an inseparable part of their lives! (Nike, as a brand has a place in the culture that far exceeds the particular performance characteristics of their shoes). ------------------------------------------------- A fair understanding of strategic planning process and its tools can bring in provocative thinking and add fresh impetus to......

The Vice President Had No Power

...“The Vice-President of the US has no real importance, only potential importance as the next president.” How far do you agree with the view? The executive is the core of the government, where policy is formed and executed. In the USA there is a presidential executive, providing the political leadership of the country. The role of the president is outlined in Article 2. All executive power is vested in one president, elected separately from Congress with his own mandate. It is a single-person executive and president’s cabinet has no constitutionally derived power or electoral mandate, and the president may or may not seek their advice when making decisions (unlike the “cabinet government” in the UK, which is a plural executive drawn from Parliament). Although the president does have enumerated powers, more media attention than the Vice President and more overall power in the executive, the Vice President has more importance than just potentially becoming the next president. The president has formal enumerated powers, which makes him more important than the vice president who is elected under him. The president is chief executive and executive power is only given to the president, rather than shared between the president and the vice president. The executive branch is under presidential control and he is responsible for the federal budget, setting out and implementing the policy agenda for the USA. The executive powers also include the power of patronage and pardon. For......

Case 16 the New Vice President

...Case 16 – Part A 1. At this point, what are your predictions about Jennifer as the interim vice president? A glance thru Jennifer’s background at Mid-West U, briefly details out what type of person she is. She was well known and admired among her peers for her devotion to the University as well as for her energy and charm. Her characteristics portray how she devotes her entire life to her work and her social environment. She succeeds in her teaching career and administrative positions but being selected as the interim vice president doesn’t guarantee her any success. Being selected as the number-two person at the top of the organization will be a challenge, but it will allow her to manage people and have the opportunity to decide what’s best for Mid-West U Both of which are new tasks for her. “Big Five Personality Traits” The majority of personality tests qualify different personality aspects by five main traits. These traits are listed below. 1. Extraversion: outgoing, sociable, assertive. 2. Agreeableness: good-natured, trusting, cooperative. 3. Conscientiousness: responsible, dependable, persistent. 4. Emotional Stability: unworried, secure, relaxed. 5. Openness to Experience: imaginative, curious, broad-minded. These are not “types” of personalities, but dimensions of personality. So someone’s personality is the combination of each of their Big Five personality characteristics. For Jennifer, she may be very sociable (high Extroversion), very friendly......

...How does the sales growth rates in recent years compare with the growth in inventory and accounts receivable? What might explain why these rates are similar or different? In the last financial year, preliminary reports indicate that the company managed to generate $42.6 Million compared to the previous year where it generated $35.1 Million reporting an increase of 21.3% in revenue. Inventory grew by 16.9% and account receivable grew by 40.1% from 2005 to 2006. Ceres is a service company and they carry fewer amounts of inventory compared to a typical manufacturing company. This is an explanation for the lower percentage increase between revenue and inventory. The percentage difference between account receivable and sale revenue is about 20%, this shows that Ceres Company has been very effective in collecting funds from debtors. Additionally, it can also be explained that debts from prior periods have also been collected. What have been the key factors in the company’s growth? The Ceres Gardening Company has been exceptional in many respects. At the outset, it is imperative to acknowledge its founders vision: It is the most profitable business in the organic farming sector and has grown successfully for the last 25 years it has been in operation.

...   8 set-up just to monitor the internet browsing habits, it might not raise a lot of concerns. However, combine that with monitoring of phone calls, surveillance in public areas through cameras, ability and authority to obtain bank records, and access to health-related information, only then one begins to wonder if their life has become an open book with the government having access and knowledge of each page. 3. Privacy Considerations This section covers a few areas of our day-to-day life that might be deemed significant from privacy perspective.   3.1. E-mail E-mail has become a de-facto mode of communication for both personal and professional needs. The increased usage of e-mail has been epitomized by US President Barack Obama using a hand-held device to communicate via email. The perceived insecure usage of e-mail also attracted controversy when Hillary Clinton, in a position of Secretary of State, set-up a personal e-mail server to communicate for official purposes. Most websites use the e-mail address as the identity information. The communication in the office environment cannot be imagined without the use of e-mail. Although the use of social media is presenting challenges to e-mail usage for personal matters, e-mails are still frequently used to remain in touch with family and friends. Given the ubiquitous presence of e-mail systems, it is naturally a target of information security hackers and viruses. All such attacks either try......
