Scholars and practitioners around the globe have identified the capability of MNCs to create and efficiently transfer and combine knowledge from different locations worldwide as an increasingly important determinant of competitive advantage, corporate success and survival. Traditional marketing approaches have overly focused on explicit knowledge and neglected the important role of tacit knowledge, specifically in international, cross-cultural settings. This book draws on real-life examples of knowledge-based firms - Hewlett-Packard Consulting & Integration, Schindler, Siemens, Toyota, Mazda, and Maekawa - to reveal that knowledge-based marketing is key to obtaining a sustainable competitive advantage.
Organizational Development (OD) consultants often face dilemmas when they market their services because there is a gap between clients' expectation and OD consultants' role. This book is about how to overcome that dilemma by finding effective marketing strategies for a different approach to consulting. This book focuses on the challenges faced by internal and external consultants in marketing and selling their services. By distinguishing between performance consulting and Organization Development (OD) consulting, this book demonstrates why marketing and selling OD consulting services are unique. This book also delineates marketing and sales discipline to describe how these are different disciples. This book meets not only unique OD consultants' need by reflecting the philosophical background of OD and unique marketing challenges but also HRD managers' need who are interested in promoting or selling their change interventions within their organizations.
