<ul><li><p> Customer Relationship Marketing Sussex International Summer School 2006 Course Workbook Course leader: Dr. Paurav Shukla Email: OR Phone: +44-1273-642140 Website: Brighton Business School University of Brighton </p></li><li><p>Module overview Customer Relationship Marketing (CRM) is a crucial subject to study. In an era of increasingly transient management themes, few board agenda items are attracting sustained attention like CRM. To provide the measure of the explosion of management interest in CRM, Forrester Research searched the Dow Jones content base of more than 6000 management publications for references about CRM and found 6048 articles in 2000, up from 442 articles in 1998 (Chatham et al. 2001). A recent search at emerald by me produced 563 relevant articles on CRM. Research has shown that companies worldwide lose half their customers every five years. But most managers fail to address that fact head-on by striving to learn why those defectors left. This module will delve with issue related to CRM from theoretical as well as practical perspectives and provide the participants with guidance on improving the overall understanding of marketing. I have chosen to call this a workbook as opposed to a handbook, since if it is used in the ways it is intended, it will direct you in your own personal study of the subject and thereby help you to pass the exam also! Please refer to the module timetable for more details regarding the topics we will cover from week to week. For each week of lectures, the slides are included with space to make notes during the lectures. There is also a page detailing the seminar activity at the end of each lecture note which provides details of the seminar activity and also provides with the space to make notes during the seminar. If you have any questions about anything contained within this workbook, email me and I will get back to you. I hope you enjoy the module! </p></li><li><p>Aims and Objectives This module is concerned with the understanding of marketing strategies aimed at delivering quality, securing repeat business and generating customer loyalty.
