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.
