Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
This interpretive study aims to understand the adoption of marketing knowledge, market orientation (MO) and customer relationship management (CRM) particularly. By means of a series of interviews with managers and employees of third-party logistics (TPL) service providers in Turkey, it has been found that practitioners interpret, reconstruct and reconfigure management knowledge in their own contexts. The adoption process may not be as apparent and straightforward as usually thought. Operational quality and goal relevance moderated the rate of adoption. Despite the small sample size as a major limitation, this study may form the basis for an expanded research effort that is international.
