Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 14, 2008
Axios Partners, Inc. today announced its faculty affiliate, Professor James Anderson of the Kellogg School of Management, has launched his new book, Value Merchants: Demonstrating and Documenting Superior Value in Business Markets. Dr. Anderson is considered the world's leading authority on Business-to-Business (B2B) marketing having already written the best selling B2B marketing textbook and numerous Harvard Business Review articles. On Tuesday, January 15, Dr. Anderson will be hosting a book launch in conjunction with the Kellogg Alumni Association on the Kellogg campus in downtown Chicago.
Based on the results of Dr. Anderson's latest research on crafting winning value propositions and managing customer value, Value Merchants defines B2B marketing best practices and provides expert guidance to managers who are facing disappointing sales growth and increasing price pressures. "To gain a fair return on the value their offerings deliver, firms must be able to persuasively demonstrate and document the value they provide customers relative to the next best alternative for those customers," says Dr. Anderson. In Value Merchants, he describes his groundbreaking customer value assessment methodology to provide an understanding of customer requirements and preferences, and what it is worth in monetary terms to fulfill them.
"Dr. Anderson's approach to customer value management has created dramatic results for our clients. For example, we've seen clients increase margins by 25% or achieve 85% penetration in new markets by demonstrating and documenting their superior value," says Eric Berggren, Managing Director. To reflect the success that its clients have had with Dr. Anderson's and other cutting edge methods, Axios has redesigned its website: http://www.AxiosPartnersInc.com. Copies of Dr. Anderson's book, as well as other publications highlighting best practices in marketing, can be obtained through the Axios website: http://www.AxiosPartnersInc.com/ideastools.html.
