Description In an economy where products, marketing campaigns and management practises are ever changing, business executives are increasingly recognising that understanding the value of their customers is vital to the survival of the business. Loyal customers are what every organisation seeks. However, increasingly complex supply/demand relationships also result in 'promiscuity' among customers. Therefore, it is crucial that managers have the skills to not only strive for excellence and consistency in product-centric perspectives, but also foster and strengthen those that are customer-centric. This unit fundamentally examines the opportunities and challenges in: a) identifying customers, b) adding value to supplier/consumer relationships, including tools that firms/organisations can use to provide value for customers while ensuring profitability over the entire life of the relationship.
