DESCRIPTIONCo-opetition. The hybrid behaviour of competition and cooperation or Sleeping with the enemy? |
ANALYSIS (CONCEPTS, EXAMPLES, STATUS OF SOURCE, CRITIQUE etc)Dr Mosad Zineldin is a Professor of Strategic Marketing and a Master in Psychology. He has wrote and published several books and articles in many different international journals, notably his book on TRM, the first in the world to outline the framework of relationship management.However, his article “Co-opetition: the organisation of the future” (marketing, intelligence & planning, Vol 22 No7, 2004 pp.780-789) suggests that this is a new concept of cooperation between companies or has Zineldin linked this to support his work on TRM? Co-opetition is qualified for the first time by Nalebuff and Brandenburger (1996) which surprisingly Zineldin fails to recognize in the article! But even these esteemed authors cannot take credit for the concept of Co-opetition; this accolade is accredited to Mr Ray Noorda, who in 1983 brought together hardware and software companies to work together in a networked environment, a “culture fit” which supports Bengtsson and Kock (2000). “co-opetition thus implies that organisations can interact in rivalry due to conflicting interests, and at the same time co-operate due to common interests” This concept questions Hensler (2000) in which he “describes as a myth the notion that competition is an inevitable, productive, enjoyable and character- building part of human nature”, human nature has always been survival. It could be argued that Margulis (1998) serial endosymbiosis theory (SET) that one organism lives inside the other and both function as a…...

Marketing Mix

... popularity which according to van Waterschoot and van den Bulte (1992), was primarily because of its simplistic nature and ease of memorization, the elements of the mix came with limitations. The model was criticized by (Popovic, 2006) for being in favor of producers rather than in favor of customers. Möller (2006) perceived the mix to be internally focused and regarded customers as inactive. Instead of focusing on what was done for the customer this model stressed on what was done to the customer (van Waterschoot, 1999). However the current market reality calls for a mix that is driven by customers (Lauterborn, 1990). Therefore marketers should first take into account the four C’s-customer solution, communication, customer cost and convenience (Kotler and Armstrong, 2008) and then think of four Ps. Dev and Shultz (2002) also suggested a customer focused model named SIVA which meant replacing product. place, price and promotion with Solutions, information, value and access. “Maturity has been difficult for the four Ps” (Yudelson, 1999, p.62). According to Brunner II (1988) the components of the marketing mix model have remained the same but the application of marketing as a concept has changed. Today the focus lies on building long term relations with the customers and their retention whereas the 4Ps model neglected interaction and relationships (Zineldin and Philipson, 2007). However given the above drawbacks, according to Zineldin (1995) an often stated criticism has......

Coopetition: the Organization of the Future

...Concept Description Zineldin (2004) defines Coopetition as “a business situation in which independent parties cooperate with one another and coordinate their activities, thereby collaborating to achieve mutual goals, but at the same time compete with each other as well as with other firms” The paper predicts that organisations of the future need to engage in Coopetition in a carefully planned and managed and controlled way in order to deliver synergy and enjoy a win-win situation. The paper also discusses the preconditions that need to be met by organisations that try to engage in Coopetition in order to avoid a negative effect that could be experienced as they engage in Coopetition. Analysis (concepts, examples status of source critique etc) Zineldin has laid the paper abstract very well and simple, but he quotes himself immediately after. This dilutes the strength of the paper. He makes reference to himself three times at the end of the paper. He does not make reference to Brandenburger & Nalebuff, who are very well respected academics and are considered the gurus on the concept of Coopetition. The way the paper has been quoted shows that either Zineldin thinks he is better than Brandenburger & Nalebuff or he is not scholarly aware of the depth of work that they have contributed to the subject. Zineldin makes a fundamental mistake when quoting Margulis by using a ‘he’ reference, yet Margulis is a female. This may demonstrate that Zineldin has not...

Riba is not restricted to increase in loan transaction to deferment of time of payment, as it might also occurs in any unjustified excess above and beyond the capital, whether in loan between creditor and deflector or in trade with similar commodities. Based on the hadith stated about riba is gold for gold, silver for silver, wheat for wheat, barley for barley, dates for dates, and salt for salt, like for like, equal for equal and hand for hand, if commodities differ then you may sell as you wish provided that the hand to hand (Sahih al-Muslim). In Islam, take a riba or get extra money from loan is forbidden, because Riba is the prohibited payment or receipt of interest on loans of money. However, if riba is, in essence define as as interest then the entire present civil and commercial structure is tainted with illegality. Riba same with the act of consuming someone else's property without risk, easy obtained the rich over the poor grief and damage to the human spirit to work for money.

... and team members. Patients just come for diagnosis and/or therapy and then leave (outpatients), but some others stay the nights (inpatients). Putting the patient first is a challenge that requires not just a huge change in the mindset of all the stakeholders in health care provision, but also the means by which to measure the levels of satisfaction of patients, and to discover what matters to them before, during and after their visit to any hospital. Patient quality initiatives, with their softer, experiential focus than clinical audit, with its precise and scientific methods of measurement, demand different measurement techniques. According to Pricewaterhouse Coopers (2007), in the service sector, the health care industry, one of India’s largest sectors in terms of revenue and employment, is growing rapidly. In India, the service quality of health care is miserable and in general, the health outcome is far from satisfactory (Bajpai and Goyel, 2004). Therefore, government of India has adopted a policy of health care reform having two basic objectives to achieve health securities for all and to provide quality health facilities for all within every district in India (John, 2010). In the care sector, customer satisfaction is also an important issue as in other service sectors (Shabbir et.al. 2010). A health care organization can achieve patient satisfaction by providing quality services; keeping in view patients’ expectation and continuous improvement......

The Impact of Buyer Suppllier Relationship on Jit

... middlemen) to a relationship respectively. Adaptation is important, because many relationships are based on some kind of match between the operations of the two firms (Brennan & Turnbull, 1995). It occurs when suppliers adapt to the needs of specific important buyers and that buyers adapt to the capabilities of specific suppliers (Hallén et al., 1991). Many of the adaptations that each partner makes to their normal operations are normally formally laid down in the contract between the buyers and suppliers, while others are informal adaptations that are agreed upon to cope with problems that arise or at the request of the other (Zineldin & Jonsson, 2000). The adaptation behavior usually varies over the life of the intra-firm relationship. In the early stages adaptation is a means to develop trust, and in the mature stage it is about expansion and solidification of the relationship. It tends to bond the buyer and seller in a tighter relationship and create barriers for entry to a competing supplier (Han & Wilson, 1993).

... relationships. Other researchers also contend that communication of information (Coote et al., 2003) as well as opportunism and communication (Zineldin and Jonsson, 2000) influence both trust and commitment in supplier-dealer relationships. An extensive search of the literature (as summarised in Appendix 1 and 2) shows a significant range of variables discussed in the buyer-seller commitment studies. Among the 69 variables examined in 26 studies, only 15 variables are used in more than one study, the other 54 have not been assessed in any follow-up study. While researchers have found support for some of the variables, there seems to be no consensus among them on the antecedents of commitment. Although factors such as opportunism, communication, trust, transaction-specific investment and environmental volatility (grounded in transaction cost economics) seem quite meaningful in explaining the overseas distributor’s commitment, these do not necessarily form an exhaustive list of possible antecedents. A number of other antecedents of commitment can be inferred from theories relevant in this area of research (internationalisation process theory in particular). Cultural similarity (grounded in internationalisation theory), knowledge and experience (grounded logically in internationalisation theory and resource-based theory of the firm to some extent), and supplier’s competencies (derived from the literature including resource-based view of the firm) may also be relevant as......

... postulated that .organizational benefits for relationship marketing such as loyalty to the service provider and provision of strong word-of-mouth endorsements by customers. According to Zineldin (2006), referrals are a vital source of new customers and customers who show up on the strength of a personal recommendation tend to stay long. This is evident in most businesses and is one of the pivotal strategies most marketers or businesses aim at gaining a new customer everyday. Especially in digital marketing which is one of the modern tools or strategies being utilized by businesses. Digital marketing simply is the promotion of products or brands via one or more forms of electronic media and digital marketing strategy defines how companies should channel leads and sales targets, budgets for acquisition, retention and growth. As a pictorial illustration for an example, figure 1shows the name of the business and their website registration form. Figure 2, looking at the portion in the red rectangle, they want to know how the customer got to know about the business and in figure 3 shows an outline of possible referrals. This means businesses are putting in so much effort to gather information from their customers and in this pictorial illustration, it is clear that ‘referrals’ are a vital source of new customers as said by Zineldin (2006). Firms are therefore incorporating this in their marketing campaigns and enhancing customer relationship management and......

Emotions at Work

...Crying At Work: Displaying Strong Emotions in the Workplace Tamara L. Ginter Southern New Hampshire University Crying At Work: Displaying Strong Emotions in the Workplace We all feel emotions. Yet, it is a well-known “fact” that emotions do not belong in the workplace. Business literature for decades has reinforced the stereotype that emotions negatively affect the workplace (see, for examples, Taylor, 1947; Whyte 1956). Only recently has research begun to focus on the many facets of emotions on organization behavior (Huy, 2012; Kluemper, DeGroot, & Choi, 2013; Mirela & Iulia, 2013; Muchinsky, 2000; Perrone & Vickers, 2004; Zineldin, 2012). This paper will address several aspects of emotions in the workplace, including: managing emotions, displaying emotions, management styles that use emotions as a tool, and changing an organization’s emotional climate. Managing Emotions Of the five categories of emotions defined by Lazarus and Lazarus (1994, cited in Muchinsky 2000), only two of the three categories consist of positive emotions. Muchinsky (2000) hypothesizes that it is how we respond to emotions, our coping efforts, that “are a major contributing factor in understanding job performance” (804). Several factors can make some organizations ineffective at managing emotions. The first is due to coping efforts, which are “not just a fixed set of strategies…but a changing pattern that is responsive to what is happening” (Muchinsky, 2000, p. 804). For...

This study will examine the relationships between the marketing mix and customer retention for Tongkat Ali coffee. The research study will attempt to address the gap and identify the marketing mix factors and its effect on customer retention for Tongkat Ali coffee. In other words, the study will attempt to identify and link the cause and effect relationship between marketing mix and customer retention for Tongkat Ali coffee. In the process, the research study will also attempt to examine and reinforce two models in customer preference, namely, ‘Customer Preference Formation’ model (Schiffman & Kanuk, 2006) and ‘Black Box‘ model (Howard & Sheth, 1969). With regards to customer retention, references were made to journal articles by Zineldin (2006) on ‘The royalty of loyalty: CRM, quality and retention’ and by Mascarenhas, Kesavan and Bernacchi (2006) on ‘Lasting customer loyalty: a total customer experience approach’ during the formation of the hypotheses and the research model. PROBLEM STATEMENT This involves identifying the decision problems and then translating these problems into the research problems. The major problem faced in the Tongkat Ali premixed coffee industry is the ease of market entry and the simple process involved in manufacturing. Raw materials are easily available and aplenty. The basic raw materials used are sugar, non dairy creamer, foaming powder, instant coffee...

I empathize and have survived the leadership styles at U-Haul. The aversive management created an extremely competitive, tense, and mildly hostile work environment. I would literally have nightmares about work and I if I saw a moving truck I would become anxious and uneasy. I know many employees that felt the same as I. Many of us were coined the “mediocre” sales reps who kind of fell in the “sales” limbo of the department. We were just good enough to stay, but not good enough to be regarded. According to the article “Leaders’ negative emotions and leadership styles influencing subordinates’ well-being”, emotions are deeply connected to any organizational life.(Zineldin & Hytter, 2012) Healthy work environments are essential in the growth of an organization, and managers with positive interpersonal relationships contribute to such an environment. It states that job satisfaction is a significant element that affects the health of workers, such as self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. When job satisfaction is absent, it takes toll on job performance in turn. So when leaders engage in destructive management styles and not exercising emotional intelligence, such as being spiteful, vengeful, envious, and...

..., corporate image, perceived price, internal controllable influence, external uncontrollable influence 1. Introduction Service quality is closely related with customer satisfaction (Kumar et.al. 2008; Zineldin, 2006; Wei and Ramalu, 2011). In the modern competitive environment, the quest of customer’’s satisfaction hugely depends on the firms overall service quality (SQ) and is considered to be an essential strategy (Paradise-Tornow, 1991). To measure the service quality researchers used SERVQUAL and Gronroos’’s model in various aspects of business environment. Though, the dimension of quality and the measurement approach of the service quality and its relationship with customer’’s satisfaction are still been unsettled (Owlia and Aspinwall 1996; Parasuraman et. al., 1993; Cronin, Taylor, 1994; Carman, 1990; Buttle, 1996). In spite of the ongoing debate and development of new theory numerous researchers have agreed the significances of service quality and its impact on customer satisfactions (Arambewela, 2006; Ben, 2007; Boshoff, 2004). However Parasuraman et al., (1985) measure service quality which was based on Oliver's (1980) disconfirmation model which proposed that service quality is a function of the differences between expectation and performance along the quality dimensions. While Oliver (1980) proposed that satisfaction is a function of the disconfirmation of performance from customer’’s expectation. Oliver (1980) also proposed that both the service and...

The Importance of Employee Retention

...The Importance of Employee Retention The sustainability and success of any organization depends upon the retention of key employees and according to Panoch, (2001) valuable employees are increasingly becoming more difficult to find. In today's highly competitive environment employee retention should be top priority for organizations especially since many consider human talent to be the ‘greatest assets' to a company. Cutler (2001) stated that one of the most important demands on management today in any organization is keeping the most vital and dynamic human resources motivated and dedicated. Managing and retaining valuable talent requires a balance between the employee aspirations and the strategic and financial needs of the business. Implementing strategies that encourage employees to remain in an organization can be termed as employee retention. Zineldin, (2000) has defined retention as “an obligation to continue to do business or exchange with a particular company on an ongoing basis”. * Hiring is not an easy process. According to the University of California, Riverside, in order to strategically increase efficiency and effectiveness in hiring and retention and to maintain consistency and compliance in the recruitment and selection process there are a number of tedious steps that must be followed. These processes can be very time consuming and costly for an organization. Step 1: Identify Vacancy and Evaluate Need Step 2: Develop Position Description Step 3...

... with Blattberg’s opinion. CHAPTER THREE LITERATURE REVIEW 3. LITERATURE REVIEW 3.1 - Relationship Marketing: Even though marketing practices can be traced from the 7000 B.C. (Carratu, 1987), the reconceptualization started in the 1980’s where more importance was given to customer service and more emphasis was placed on taking care of customers (Ballantyne et al, 1993). Focus shifted from transaction marketing to relationship marketing (Webster, 1992). This marketing form puts more stress on the retention and satisfaction of customers in place of just transactions between the organization and its clients. A collectively approved definition of RM does not exist, however Gronroos’ (2004) definition can be used due to his widespread research in this field. He opined that in order to satisfy the expectations of both parties, there should be establishment, enrichment, and preservation of relationships with the organization’s clients at a profit. Ndubisi (2003), states that the key purpose of RM is to cultivate loyalty amongst customers. Relationships are built by instilling trust, fulfilling promises, good communication between both the parties and commitment. Zineldin (2006) stated that for relationships to be built just selling products or services are not enough, additional benefits such as social benefits, confidence benefits and preferential benefits are necessary. This becomes more important in the retail sector...
