Summary of The Market Driven Organization
Understanding, Attracting and Keeping Valuable Customers
To outperform your competition, listen to the market and obey.
Expanding on the groundbreaking concepts first presented in Market Driven Strategy, George S. Day presents a detailed illustration of what a market-driven organization looks like and how it operates. This practical book provides many specific suggestions that executives can implement to get their companies in tune with their customers and their markets. Day also presents contrasting examples that show blunders, setbacks and outright failures among companies that stubbornly retain inward-looking cultures. This book joins Day’s earlier work as a classic in the management field and getAbstract recommends both books to business people at all levels.
In this summary, you will learn
- What it means to be a “market-driven organization”
- Why market-driven companies can maintain a competitive edge over their competitors
- How to compete for customer relationships
