Marketing - A New Thought



Marketing isn’t about “pushing people’s thoughts and actions. It’s about amplification, helping what’s already happening grow faster.”  Mark Bonchek and Cara France


Marketing Can No Longer Rely on the Funnel
http://blogs.hbr.org/2014/05/marketing-can-no-longer-rely-on-the-funnel/
7 May 2014

Yes, Marketing first finds out what customers need and participates in new product development. As the product is introduced in the market, it finds out whether the customer has accepted the product and whether now the need became a want for the product supplied by the company. In this exercise, marketing will determine which products will have a marketing communication push. So marketing does push people's thoughts. But if people accept a product, it amplifies the demand through marketing communications and making more people aware of the product, its features and benefits. Marketing also creates the marketing channels.

Prof. Dr. William R. Spriegel - Biography and Contribution

Date of Birth 14 May 1893



William Robert Spriegel,  born in Charleston, West Virginia, on May 14, 1893.

He received a B.A. degree in economics in 1914 and a B.S. degree in chemistry in 1915, both from Lebanon University. Spriegel served for two years as superintendent of schools at Waynesville, Ohio. In World War I he served as an aviator and test pilot.

Spriegel received an M.A. degree in psychology in 1920 and a Ph.D. degree in economics in 1935, both from the University of Michigan.

From 1919 to 1931 he held important managerial positions with the U.S. Rubber Company, Dodge Brothers, Fisher Body Corporation, and Charles A. Strelinger Company in Detroit.

Spriegel began his teaching career at Western Kentucky State Teachers College in 1934, and in 1937 he went to Northwestern University, where he chaired the management department from 1939 to 1948.  He joined the University of Texas faculty in 1948 as professor of management and associate dean of the College of Business Administration. He was named dean of the college two years later and held that post until 1958. Spriegel continued to teach through 1966.

He was the author and coauthor of many books, including Personnel Management (1954), Industrial Management (1955), and Elements of Supervision (1957).

His numerous monographs included works on job evaluation, personnel practices in the automobile industry and colleges and universities, and training supervisors in human relations. He served as vice president and later as president of the American Academy of Management during the mid-1950s. He was the 9th President of the American Academy of Management for the year 1954.

He was one of the U.S. delegates to the International Management Congress in 1953 and 1957.

On May 21, 1953, the Texas House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring him for "notable and constructive work in the field of Scientific Management."

He died in Austin on August 28, 1972.

Today is birthday of Paul Samuelson, an economist and nobel prize winner. Let us celebrate it as Knol Day of Economics on Knol and read knols and highlight knols in the area of economics.
2011 - Knol Day of Economics - 15th May - Birthday of Paul Samuelson
1.11.2010
The World Bank has launched a programme to put a value on nature and bring that value into national accounts. This will give the natural wealth of nations and account for its increase or decrease. This was revealed by the President of WB in Nagoya, Japan where a UN meet is taking place.

Another basic stuff

01.6.2009 Basic valuation arithmetic

Interest rates and rates of returns are intuitively understood by most people, but their arithmetic (compound rates, future value, present value) are mysterious for many.
The Compound rate of return and present value knol aims at explaining the bases to calculate financial returns and financial values. 

 

16.5.2009 Defining finance

A set of activities, tools and institutions that collect money, that provide it to realize projects and that exchange risks and returns between economic players.
As seen in the Financial knol index
Interesting definition. As a function, finance function collects money, and provides it to projects or expenditure or investment proposals and then after the completion of projects or periodically during the projects exchanges cash flows with providers of finance. Risk is inherent in finance activity. (KVSSNrao)

13.5.2009 Knols on Analysis of Financial Statements

9.5.2009 KVSSNRao - Investment Links

A set of links shared by Dan O'Shea in his MBA class.
About Books
The Either/Or Investor by Clark Winter Pub. by Random House, 181 pages, $26 
Clark Winter is the director of portfolio strategy at Goldman Sachs.
"Successful investors have a unique ability to process an enormous information and boil it down to binaries that simplify decision making." A quote from the book.
Any further information on the important issues covered in the book is welcome



8.5.2009 KVSSNRao - Mechanical Estimating Models for Forecasting Financials


"A prospective approach should also be used, as investment is anticipating evolutions."

Theoretically the above statement is perfectly right. Methods which use only historical information use an implicit assumption that past data has the ability to predict the future and instead of making explicit future estimates, they give a judgment in either qualitative way or quantitative way. Are they useful or not is an empirical issue. I shall try to give details of some research papers on various methods proposed by Graham.

I also support approaches based on estimating the future and developing scenarios of future evolution. But my study of various texts on security analysis makes me conclude that they texts have not tackled the issue of estimating the future with rigor.  They probably make an implicit assumption that some argument that provides some justification for the projected scenario is sufficient enough to take risk in the stock market. Statisticians have not paid attention to the subject of forecasting company financials because they were not getting models that fit the data adequately. Still, fitting a model with poor fit will bring out the risk inherent in the company's financial information. Benjamin Graham advised that security analysis should be limited only to those companies which have a stable financial performance based on which future can be predicted. For other company securities, security analyst should not give any opinion. They are a class of securities for which security analysis cannot be done. My request to security analysis faculty and academic researchers is to examine and describe the statistical nature of company financial information in more detail.

There has to be initial estimates using statistical methods or mechanical methods, which may be subjectively modified to bring in the assessments of analysts which are based on their interaction with the company, customers, suppliers, employees, consultants, competitors, regulators, bankers, trade associations etc.  By relating their specific estimates with a mechanical estimate, analysts need to continually do hypothesis testing.  Rejecting mechanical estimate is aim of the hypothesis testing. I gave the following mechanical model to my students for their assignment work.


All authors and visitors are requested to post their ideas, opinions and comments on the board as it is an open collaboration knol. If they want, they can post in the comment box also. Your opinions may help authors to write new knols in the area, modify their knols, or offer an explanation to the issue being pointed out.

A Knol on Speculation





7.5.2009 KVSS - Bulletin board started.


A knol by me on a basic method of fundamental analysis based on historical data.
7.5.2009
Certainly, although a prospective approach should also be used, as investment is anticipating evolutions.
Another issue is what parts should the various types of analyses (fundamental, but also quantitative, technical, behavioral) play when deciding investments, disvestments, arbitrages ?

7.5.2009 KVSS
The knol  Financial analysis tables   is a good one giving details of issues to be looked into in evaluating a company.
