A.G. Lafley :: How Strategy Really Works

A.G. Lafley
Former CEO of Procter & Gamble (2000-2009)
“Playing to Win: How Strategy Really Works”
The biggest shortcoming among today’s CEOs is that they don’t think they need a strategy. They think they have a hot product or hot service. They think benchmarking, best practices and copying what the rest of the industry does is a strategy. They try to be all things to all people.
If you’re not clear about which customers you’re going to serve, how to serve them in a unique and better way that creates real value for them, and your core competencies, you’re just not going to have as much of a chance to win. You cannot grow if you don’t end up making a meaningful difference in consumers’ lives.

Comment définir *simplement* le marketing?

The Essential Drucker

Un extrait du best of de Peter F. Drucker sur la vocation d’une entreprise
“The purpose of business is to create and keep a customer.”

Fabriquez ce que vous pouvez vendre,
plutôt que d’essayer de vendre
ce que vous pouvez fabriquer

Le Marketing a pour objectif la satisfaction des besoins des clients
Il faut donc toujours partir du point de vue du client.

Comment s’organiser pour prendre un bon départ:
– Quelle est la “vision” de la Direction?
– Comment partons-nous à la recherche d’opportunités de marché?
– Où allons-nous créer un centre d’étude et d’observation des clients?

Le marketing est donc:
1.  La conception d’une offre adaptée…
2.  … aux besoins et aux attentes des clients…
3.  … ciblés selon les contraintes de l’environnement.

et voilà!
