Future-Focused Strategic Marketing by The business world is changing rapidly, requiring organizations to be more competitive and customer-centric. Applied technologies have provided opportunities for nascent startups to disrupt established business models that hadn't fundamentally changed for decades. Technologies now enable work to be separated from time and space. Technologies have also made certain occupations obsolete while creating new ones. In this changing landscape marked by hyper-competition, firms are looking for new ways to operate and manage their strategies in order to remain extremely agile, nimble, and customer-centric. Inherently, strategic marketing fuses theoretical rigor with relevance to the real world. Marketing strategies informed through insights based on quality academic research help firms develop relevant organization-wide initiatives for both enhanced value creation and subsequent value capture thereby providing bottom-line impact. The goal of âFuture-Focused Strategic Marketing' is to bring together academic and practitioner audiences in order to highlight key strategic choices for firms operating in the changed landscape. So the focus is not only on the specific marketing activities performed by the firm utilizing their capabilities, but also relevant organizational adjustments and shifts that need to be performed in order to ensure success of firm strategies in a wide variety of contexts. âFuture-Focused Strategic Marketing' is positioned as an introductory use-inspired primer in Strategic Marketing for a variety of audiences. We intend this book to stimulate novel ideas in marketing strategy scholars including doctoral students to help create cutting-edge research agendas that help shape both firm strategies and public policies. Marketing practitioners will find the relevance of the book appealing as it helps firms to both execute and sustain value in the longer-term. This focus on rigorous and relevant research has inspired the themes for the various book chapters including (i) transforming the organization, (ii) examining structure, culture, and identity issues, and (iii) specifying the relationship between capabilities and performance.

Marketing Scales Handbook by The Marketing Scales Handbook series is the longest-running set of books that provides reviews of multi-item measures used in scholarly studies of consumer behavior. This volume begins where Volume 9 ended and has new reviews of 402 scales that were reported in top marketing journals. These scales are new to the series and were not in any of the previous volumes. Each review provides the scale items (questions, statements, or semantic differentials) as well as information about the measure's origin, previous users, and measurement quality. The bulk of the scales in this book focus on topics well known in the fields of marketing and consumer science such as products, branding, advertising, retailing, and purchasing. Measures of many other topics are covered as well, including benevolence, co-production, corporate social responsibility, food, emotions, engagement, environmentalism, games, health, personality traits, satisfaction, social media, websites, and word-of-mouth.The book, along with the rest of the series, is a valuable resource to researchers in a variety of fields who want statistically reliable measures for use in their studies of consumers or similar groups such as viewers, clients, patients, or citizens. Instead of using simplistic measures of dubious quality or, at the other extreme, having to build, test, and refine measures from scratch, researchers can use the book's contents to borrow from the experts who have already crafted quality metrics. By using better measures, the precision of analyses is increased and should improve the decisions based upon the results.
