What are the ways that an organization can become more market oriented?

A. Relation of a marketing orientation to profitability

Business literature constantly refers to classical businessmen who had a marketing orientation, ranging from King Gillette (razors) to Michael Dell (computers). If there is one common trait shared by these visionaries, it is the fact that each of them gave the customer what was wanted.

The simplicity of that statement belies the complexity of determining "what" a customer wants. Fortunately, research has provided some guidelines that give indications of how consumers make their buying decisions.

Marketing theorists, for instance, will always refer to the outside motivations of the "4 P's" (product, price, place, and promotion), which is, in actuality, a major part of the equation. However, a company can have the "4-ps" in place and do everything "right" and still fail. About the only truism that can be derived from this is the well-known assertion that there is no guarantee that using the 4-ps will make a success, but not using them is almost certain disaster. In other words, there is no guaranteed ticket to success. The chewing gum magnate Wrigley was quoted as saying "I know I probably waste half of my advertising dollar.
