OPTIMISATION OF MARKETING MANAGEMENT BY LOOKING AT STRATEGIC ORIENTATION, TECHNOLOGY ORIENTATION AND INNOVATION PERFORMANCE
Keywords:Innovation performance, Marketing management, Customer orientation, Technology orientation
We examine three types of strategic orientations: customer, technology, and combined customer/technology orientation. We analyze their direct effect on innovation performance as well as the moderating effect of marketing management in terms of the marketing mix on this relationship. We test our hypotheses on a sample of 1603 French manufacturing firms and show that organizations with a combined customer/technology orientation outperform those with a customer or technology orientation alone. We also show that the moderating effect of marketing management in boosting innovation success is positive for all orientations, but greatest for organizations with a technology orientation. Finally, we find that the moderating effect of marketing management on the relationship between orientation and performance increases as more elements of the marketing mix are deployed simultaneously.
