“Business to Business Marketing” is the reference handbook for years in the French speaking countries. It encompasses the diverse BtoB contexts and combines the most recent academic research to the best business practices. Hence it is an operational guide to better adapt the marketing techniques and tools to professional targets.

Moreover this book is enhancing the increasing role played by the final user in the BtoB value chain. Beside the direct customer organization, three other target types are to be taken into account: • The employees of the customer organization – B to B to Employee (BtoBtoE) • The consumers of the customer organization – B to B to Consumer (BtoBtoC) • The users of the customer organization (energy, transportation utilities, administration…) – B to Administration to User (BtoAtoU). In the business context, customers and diverse stakeholders as well might be targeted, especially in project marketing environment, and complex selling processes, both in terms of relational and transactional activities. Additionally, the recent trends in e-communication are developed, including the use of Internet and Social Medias. Pedagogically oriented, the book is user-friendly, based on numerous examples and business cases, from different sectors and companies (IT, telecom, building industry, aeronautics, catering, car equipment, consultancy, etc.).

B to B Branding
BtoC brands have already reached a maturity stage while BtoB brands remain in a fast-growing stage, both in terms of marketing & brand manager positions and in terms of allocated budgets for brand promotion. Consequently, one of the main goals of this book is to provide companies, schools and universities support to better promote their brands. Many organizations are subcontractors depending on their ability to win request for proposals. Without a brand strategy, the candidate company stays invisible in the value chain: no name, no gain! The challenge for organizations is to win the “battle for visibility” in order to put an end to their anonymity status (simple technical partner). From then on, they have to create value through a fitted professional branding policy. There are two ways to create value: the first one comes directly from the selling of products / services made under the brand promoted; the second one comes from the new value of brand funds. In all business sectors and geographic areas, the proportion of intangible assets (brands and patents) keeps increasing in the general company value, to the expense of tangible assets. BtoB brands have to be in sync with this structural evolution. By integrating the latest practices and research results, this academic-rooted book meant for functional purposes defines new strategic paths aiming at managing the B to B brand policy depending on the final target. For the first time, a synthetic and clearly B to B oriented approach offers useful and practical perspectives meant for brand management: BtoB: the target is the client organization and it is impossible to precisely identify the individual beneficiaries BtoBtoC: the brand addresses the client’ consumers of the final products (manufactured by the client organization). This approach is characterized by the strong prescription role of the client company’s marketing department and can be part of a vertical co-branding. BtoBtoE: the final customers of the brand are the employees of the public or private client organization. The goods and services are sold to the latter but are meant for the company’s employees use. In this approach the Human Resources department can have a prescription role. BtoAtoU: The brand does not target a consumer but a user (sometimes called road-user in public transportations). Lobbying techniques are particularly effective in this case. In 10 chapters the characteristics of B to B are dealt with (Chapter 1) particularly those related with the purchase decision process (Chapter 2) and those related to communication means (Chapter 3). The B to B brand (Chapter 4) can exclusively address client (Chapter 5) or be integrated in the professional client’s offer meant for the final consumer in accordance with a BtoBtoC logic (Chapter 6). It can be inserted in more complex transactions with local collectivities addressing citizen-users on the BtoAtoU mode (Chapter 7). It can also be part of a relationship with the client company and its associates in a BtoBtoE approach (Chapter 8). Finally, many « mixed » brands can be classified in both B to C and B to B categories (Chapter 9). Developing an efficient B to B brand strategy boils down to controlling it entirely, from co-branding to by-products management, depending on the final targets (Chapter 10). Aside from functional recommendations, this book contains many examples illustrating these diverse BtoB approaches. Companies such as Atos, Sperian, BVA, JC Decaux, Dupont Protection, Tyvek, Airbus, Thales, Altran, Essilor-Varilux, Gore-Tex, PWC, Sodexo, Kimberly-Clark, Acova, Air Liquide, Tetra Pak, Serflex, Elis, Intel, Latécoère, Nomen, Technal, Tekelec, Veolia, Valeo, Vinci, Eiffage, Legrand, Lycra, 3M, Adobe, Adecco, Arkema portray the notions and techniques developed. By contacting in priority current strategic executives (CEO, Marketing & Business Development Director, Brand Manager) and future strategic executives (MBA executive programs), this book provides useful practical tools to teachers and university/business and management school/engineering school students who wish to master brand policy in the BtoB context.

The way we manage organizations seems increasingly out of date. Survey after survey shows that a majority of employees feel disengaged from their companies. The epidemic of organizational disillusionment goes way beyond Corporate America-teachers, doctors, and nurses are leaving their professions in record numbers because the way we run schools and hospitals kills their vocation. Government agencies and nonprofits have a noble purpose, but working for these entities often feels soulless and lifeless just the same. All these organizations suffer from power games played at the top and powerlessness at lower levels, from infighting and bureaucracy, from endless meetings and a seemingly never-ending succession of change and cost-cutting programs. Deep inside, we long for soulful workplaces, for authenticity, community, passion, and purpose. The solution, according to many progressive scholars, lies with more enlightened management. But reality shows that this is not enough. In most cases, the system beats the individual-when managers or leaders go through an inner transformation, they end up leaving their organizations because they no longer feel like putting up with a place that is inhospitable to the deeper longings of their soul. We need more enlightened leaders, but we need something more: enlightened organizational structures and practices. But is there even such a thing? Can we conceive of enlightened organizations? In this groundbreaking book, the author shows that every time humanity has shifted to a new stage of consciousness in the past, it has invented a whole new way to structure and run organizations, each time bringing extraordinary breakthroughs in collaboration. A new shift in consciousness is currently underway. Could it help us invent a radically more soulful and purposeful way to run our businesses and nonprofits, schools and hospitals? The pioneering organizations researched for this book have already "cracked the code." Their founders have fundamentally questioned every aspect of management and have come up with entirely new organizational methods. Even though they operate in very different industries and geographies and did not know of each other's experiments, the structures and practices they have developed are remarkably similar. It's hard not to get excited about this finding: a new organizational model seems to be emerging, and it promises a soulful revolution in the workplace. "Reinventing Organizations" describes in practical detail how organizations large and small can operate in this new paradigm. Leaders, founders, coaches, and consultants will find this work a joyful handbook, full of insights, examples, and inspiring stories.
