With the increased globalization of markets, competition among market players has become more
severe. In this competitive market, one of the most important factors is the achievement of customer
satisfaction and excellence in service. Although the concept of customer satisfaction in customer-
oriented management is not new, the relationship between customers and corporations has been
changing almost daily. Customers are becoming the absolute entity for corporations as the final
decision makers for business deals and purchases of products....
Foreign direct investment may improve productivity through technology
transfer on the one hand, and it may also have other positive external effects through
corporate linkages (e.g. market access, or improved terms of financing) on the other
hand, thus promoting economic growth. These beneficial effects are not automatic,
though. Until the mid-nineties Hungary had played a leading role within the region
in attracting investments. After 1999, however, the country started accumulating
increasing competitive disadvantages as compared to its competitors.
We model the impact of bank mergers on loan competition, reserve holdings,
and aggregate liquidity. A merger changes the distribution of liquidity
shocks and creates an internal money market, leading to financial cost efficiencies
and more precise estimates of liquidity needs. The merged banks
may increase their reserve holdings through an internalization effect or decrease
them because of a diversification effect. The merger also affects loan
market competition, which in turn modifies the distribution of bank sizes
and aggregate liquidity needs.

Over the past decade, executives have witnessed an explosion of management tools
such as Customer Relationship Management, Scenario and Contingency Planning,
and the Balanced Scorecard. Demands of increasing competition in the global
marketplace are driving the explosion, while accelerated, lower-cost delivery systems
for ideas and information have enabled it. Today the sheer volume of ideas can
overwhelm a management team.
Marketing strategy is a process that can allow an organization to concentrate its limited resources on the greatest opportunities to increase sales and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. Marketing strategies serve as the fundamental underpinning of marketing plans designed to fill market needs and reach marketing objectives. Plans and objectives are generally tested for measurable results. Commonly, marketing strategies are developed as multi-year plans, with a tactical plan detailing specific actions to be accomplished in the current year......
If countries can specialise in certain goods they can benefit from economies of scale and lower average costs, this is
especially true in industries with high fixed costs or that require high levels of investment. The benefits of economies of
scale will ultimately lead to lower prices for consumers.
The need for organizations to innovate and furthermore to ceaselessly innovate is stressed
throughout the modern management literature on innovation. This need comes from
increasing competition and customer demands and new market areas. Closely linked, but
not synonymous, with innovation is the body of knowledge referred to collectively as
knowledge management. Within this discourse knowledge is considered as a potential key
competitive advantage, by helping to increase innovation within the organization.

Carriers are moving voice services to packet networks both to reduce upfront and
operational costs and to provide more value-added services in an increasingly

data access lines were 60 percent to 80 percent cheaper than voice lines.
Maintenance of packet networks was 50 percent less expensive, while
provisioning was 72 percent lower.
Projects have been in existence for thousands of years, dating back as far as Egyptian
civilization and the construction of the pyramids. It is only recently that project
management practices have evolved to the status of a discipline with proper methodology,
tools, and techniques. Today, the need for efficient and effective management
of projects within the organization comes about as a result of the increased
competition in the marketplace.
In an increasingly competitive world, it is quality of thinking that gives an edge-an idea that opens new doors, a technique that solves a problem, or an insight that simply helps make sense of it all. We work with leading authors in the various arenas of business and finance to bring cutting-edge thinking and best learning practice to a global market. It is our goal to create world-class print publications and electronic products that give readers knowledge and understanding which can then be applied, whether studying or at work....

environment faced by organizations throughout the world today. It is particularly critical in industries
undergoing changes in traditional channel configuration. CRM is a means of addressing increasing
