Forecasting and Market Analysis Techniques A Practical Approach

Forecasting and Market Analysis Techniques A Practical Approach

Author: George J. Kress, John Snyder Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/05/1994

Sales forecasting and market analysis are the cornerstones of the planning process. Yet, these two tasks are usually performed by people with only limited training in either area because most firms do not have full-time forecasters/market analysts. The authors acknowledge this situation and attempt to describe the key techniques for forecasting sales and analyzing markets in a format that meets the needs of an audience with limited quantitative skills. In addition to its basic approach, another strength of this book is that it combines the coverage of two key activities--forecasting and market analysis--that are performed by the same person in most middle-sized (and smaller) firms. The book's contents and format were designed with two audiences in mind: persons assigned to develop forecasts and market analyses, but who are not specialists in either area, and persons who will be incorporating these results in their planning and decision making. The major portion of the book is devoted to the three basic categories of forecasting models--time series, causal, and judgmental--emphasizing the most widely used models in each category. Special attention is also given to the sources for obtaining the data needed to make forecasts and analyze markets. The latter part of the book describes procedures for developing market and sales potentials, methods for segmenting markets, and some analytic techniques such as conjoint analysis and cluster analysis, gaining increased usage among market analysts.

Marketing Strategies for Services Globalization - Client-orientation - Deregulation

Marketing Strategies for Services Globalization - Client-orientation - Deregulation

Author: M. M. Kostecki Format: Hardback Release Date: 27/01/1994

What are the trends affecting the marketing of services? How is the current tendency towards customer orientation, globalization, deregulation and technological change determining the ways in which leading service firms conduct their marketing activities? Why is cross-sector fertilization particularly useful for services, and what type of strategic response is most likely to shape business success of service firms in the future? These are some of the questions addressed in this collective volume by academics and practitioners working with and within the service sector. Drawing on their own business experience as well as upon theoretical developments and concepts on marketing, strategic analysis, economics and organization theory, the authors present a fresh approach to questions of marketing strategies for services in global markets. They argue that in their marketing strategies, outstanding service firms increasingly emphasize results and performance, service technology, network structure and culture, lobbying, and global thinking in approaching markets and co-operation arrangements. Given the strength of the adjustment shock affecting service producers and its certain continuation, this book - full of insights and unconventional thinking - is an important contribution to the literature of services management. It will be useful reading for all who wish to understand why old patterns in the marketing of services are breaking down, as well as what lies around the corner.
