ISBN: 9780757581311 Welcome to Marketing Management! Peter Drucker claimed that “any business enterprise has only two basic functions: marketing and innovation. All else is detail.” Robert Lewis Stevenson observed, “We all live by selling something.” Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric proclaimed, “Marketing isn’t somebody’s responsibility; marketing is everybody’s responsibility.” Although all functional areas of the firm are necessary, marketing plays a critical role in creating value for the firm’s chosen customers. If there is no value, customers leave. Without customers, companies fail. Meeting customers’ needs creates value. A portion of the value may be captured through pricing. So, marketing creates value for customers and generates revenue for the firm.
