Surprisingly good. This short book takes just a couple of hours to read and list 10 marketing sins and how to solve them.
The ten sins are:
1) Your Company Is Not Sufficiently Market Focused and Customer Driven
2) Your Company Does Not Fully Understand Its Target Customers
3) Your Company Needs to Better Define and Monitor Its Competitors
4) Your Company Has Not Properly Managed Its Relationships with Its Stakeholders

The CEO and the 9th Deadly Marketing Sin
In 2004 Philip Kotler wrote quite a good marketing book entitled Ten Deadly Marketing Sins. It does a good job of reminding marketer to go back to the basics of marketing. In doing that, it highlights for a CEO, what marketing should be focused on and what the CEOs role in marketing should be.
Marketing is one of the many jobs that a CEO must understand. In fact I will go as far as to say that the CEO should be the #1 marketing visionary for the company. M

Aún con teoría un poco arcaica, no deja de ser un excelente libro.

Short text. Gave this a skim/read last weekend as part of my Kotler-book-a-week project.

Kotler offers a quick overview of the fundamental shortcomings firms generally are working on with regard to their overall Marketing function (not just advertising and lead-gen, but the full go-to-market picture). I took away some ideas for my organization around Marketing function fragmentation, customer segmentation, ideation processes, and marketing leadership.

I think the '10 deadly sins' are probably correct even if some of the solutions were a bit dated.

A very quick read - 147 pages in big print with lots of boxes and subheadings (and about 20 blank pages).

Tiene información interesante, sobre todo si uno hasta ahora está aprendiendo sobre marketing, pero se queda corto en varias cosas que menciona.
Aug 10, 2008 Sarah rated it it was ok
Straightforward. The best part was that it gave me a high-level overview of what can be involved in marketing.

Some ideas are very popular, but little old. The book is good, it has some interesting cogitations.
