Challenges in Understanding Customer Behaviour
Abstract:Research into the behaviour of customers and their decision making have been at the heart of marketing thinking. A lot of insights have been gained over the last decades which enable practitioners to increase new product development success, to improve communication efficiency etc. However, changing times and a tendency to oversimplify complex issues provide grounds for revisiting common assumptions about customer behaviour and to start developing a "new view on customer behaviour". This overview presents three challenges to existing theory as well as it introduces the papers of this issue.
