  2. Organizational life cycle Theory  The organizational life cycle theory that was developed by business consultant and former professor Ichak Adizes, refers to the expected and distinct sequence of advancements experienced by an organization, as opposed to a randomized occurrence of events.  The organizational life cycle is a theoretical model based on the changes organizations experience as they grow and mature.
  3. According to Adizes, generally, there are five stages to an organization's life cycle:
  4. Organizational Life cycle Theory:  Stage 1: Existence(Start-up): Commonly known as the birth stage, “existence” signifies the start of an organization's expansion. The main importance is centered around the acknowledgement of having an adequate number of customers to keep the organization or business active.  Stage 2: Survival(Growth): At this stage, organizations look to pursue growth, establish a framework and develop their capabilities. There is a focus on regularly setting targets for the organization, with the main aim being to generate sufficient revenue for survival and expansion.
  5. Organizational Life cycle Theory:  Stage 3: Maturity : This stage signifies the organization entering a more formal hierarchy of management (hierarchical organization).  Stage 4: Renewal(Revival): Organizations experience a renewal in their structure of management, from a hierarchical to a matrix style, which encourages creativity and flexibility.  Stage 5: Decline: This stage initiates the death of an organization. focusing on political agenda and authority within an organization, whereby individuals start to become involved with personal objectives, instead of focusing on the objectives of the organization itself.
  6. Elaboration likelihood theory:  The Elaboration Likelihood theory (ELM) which was developed by Richard E. Petty and John Cacioppo, proposes that each and every message is undergoing the process of persuasion in two different ways.  They are called Central route and peripheral route.  Both of them are effective persuasion techniques, but each of them has its own guiding techniques to make them more operative.
  7. Elaboration likelihood theory:  Central Route  The process of persuasion through Central route is straight to the point and complete.  It is informational and structured, and focuses on a high level of cognition where the individuals are heavily involved in the decision.  It requires more involvement from the part of the addressee that should carefully analyze the message in every possible angle.
  8. Elaboration likelihood theory:  Peripheral Route  The peripheral route is the opposite, instead of the credibility of the source and statistics, it values the attractiveness.  Here the receiver of the message is not sure whether to agree with the message or to disagree, so finally, he will be persuaded by the peripheral factors.  This is where packing, marketing, advertising and other PR factors does their job.
  9. Commitment and consistency Theory:  The Commitment and Consistency principle is one of the six principles established by Cialdini (1984) in his book Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion.  It describes the way in which people want their beliefs and behaviors to be consistent with their values and self-image. Cialdini's 6 Principles of Influence are reciprocity, commitment and consistency, consensus or social proof, authority, liking and scarcity
  10. Commitment and consistency Theory:  As a psychological principle, commitment and consistency refer to the choices people make to believe more strongly in the decisions we've already made in order to avoid cognitive dissonance (a situation where you have conflicting beliefs or behaviors).  This theory refers to the use of a psychological technique in order to increase marketing effectiveness.
  11. Commitment and consistency Theory:  It states that the best way to encourage people to pass on their loyalty is to get them to commit to something consistently. That commitment could be a standpoint, their identity, their leanings or even a statement.  The theory suggests some effective ways marketers use the principles of commitment and consistency to increase costumers’ loyalty.
  12. 5 Ways to Use Commitment and Consistency to Drive Sales:  Foot in the Door technique: In this principle, you start the marketing process by offering customers small steps, then lead to bigger decisions.  Cross-Selling technique: It is where you show people items that would go well with their current purchase.  Wishlist technique: It is a smart tactic in which customer receives fluttery notifications that “now it is a good time to buy an item from the wish list” and you are just a facilitator.
  13. 5 Ways to Use Commitment and Consistency to Drive Sales:  Committing in public:Once the public shows a commitment, the individual feels that he is accountable for the actions and also feel compelled to complete the commitment.  User Generated Content Campaigns - Make them work for you :UGC, is a marketers dream. You’re getting the customers to do the work for you by sharing their work linked to a campaign that you’re doing.
  14. Theory of reasoned action:  The Theory of Reasoned Action was initiated by Ajzen and Fishbein(1975)  It is a consumer behavior theory that focuses on the relationship between marketing and the preexisting attitudes of consumers in their purchasing decisions.  It suggests consumers act on behaviors that they believe will create or receive a particular outcome.
  15. Theory of reasoned action:  The consumers’ acts are determined by two independent variables, their attitudes and subjective norms.  Attitudes are feelings that are believed to be a positive or negative in relation to the achievement of an objective.  Subjective norms are person’s beliefs about how people around them judge their behavior to be right or not. This has led marketers to several insights such as associating a purchase with a specific positive result.
  16. Open systems theory:  Based on theories, systems can be considered either open or closed.  Almost all modern theories of organization utilize the open systems perspective.  Open system theory (OST) looks at the relationships between the organizations and the environment in which they are involved.  This focus reflects on organizations' ability to adapt to changes in environmental conditions.  It is useful for businesses because it provides a framework for thinking about processes such as change – a regular part of running a business.
  17. Change in open systems is the process of adapting to shifting situation.
