O relacionamento entre as farmácias e drogarias e seu distribuidor: uma modelagem à luz da teoria do comprometimento-confiança do marketing de relacionamento / The relationship between the pharmacies and drugstores, and its distributor: a modeling in the the light of the commitment-trust theory of relationship marketing

Farina, Milton Carlos 12 August 2009 (has links)
O marketing de relacionamento contribui para a sobrevivência das empresas e para o sucesso dos negócios. Sua meta é desenvolver relacionamentos profundos, duradouros e mutuamente satisfatórios entre fornecedores e clientes. O marketing de relacionamento está associado a uma perspectiva estratégica, de posicionamento da empresa e da necessidade de a empresa se relacionar com outras organizações. Neste estudo são pesquisadas as trocas relacionais que ocorrem entre o distribuidor e o varejista, isto é, entre aquele que oferece vários produtos e serviços e aquele que vende esses produtos e serviços para o consumidor final. O assunto deste estudo trata do relacionamento entre a farmácia e a drogaria, situadas na Grande São Paulo, e o seu distribuidor principal de remédios. Comprometimento e confiança são conceitos importantes neste relacionamento, além de exercerem uma posição mediadora em um conjunto de variáveis existentes no relacionamento. Foi aplicado o modelo da teoria do comprometimento-confiança do marketing de relacionamento (Key mediating variable) de Morgan e Hunt (1994), com a inclusão do constructo poder. Inicialmente, foi realizada uma pesquisa qualitativa, que contribuiu para um maior conhecimento do contexto farmacêutico e uma segunda pesquisa qualitativa para a avaliação dos constructos e seus indicadores. Em seguida foi realizada uma pesquisa quantitativa, que consistiu de entrevistas pessoais com os responsáveis pelas compras de medicamentos das farmácias e drogarias, para a obtenção de dados com o fim de se aplicar o modelo teórico no contexto farmacêutico. A principal técnica estatística utilizada foi a modelagem de equações estruturais com o software SmartPLS. Os resultados indicam que o constructo poder pode fazer parte do modelo, além de confirmarem que confiança e comprometimento são conceitos mediadores do relacionamento. Entre várias descobertas interessantes, foram constatadas: a necessidade de maior comunicação e cooperação entre as partes envolvidas; a relação inversa entre grau de comprometimento e propensão para deixar o relacionamento; a relação direta entre confiança e cooperação e entre confiança e comprometimento entre as partes envolvidas. O modelo utilizado deve ser testado em pesquisas futuras com um maior enriquecimento dos constructos utilizados, tanto no contexto farmacêutico em outras localidades, como em outros setores de atividade em que seja pertinente a análise das ações do marketing de relacionamento. Os profissionais de marketing podem avaliar o relacionamento com seus parceiros de negócios com a aplicação do modelo estudado e identificar orientações estratégicas para o fortalecimento deste relacionamento. / The relationship marketing contributes for the survival of companies and for the business success. Its goal is to develop deep, lasting and mutually satisfactory relationships between suppliers and customers. The relationship marketing is associated with a strategic perspective, with the company positioning and with the necessity of relationship of the company with the others organizations. In this study relational exchanges between the distributor and retailer are investigated, that is, between who offers various products and services and who sells these products and services to the final consumers. The subject of this study deals with the relationship between the pharmacy and drugstore, located in the Great São Paulo, and their main distributor of medicines. Commitment and trust are important concepts in this relationship, and play a mediator position within a set of existing variables in the relationship. The model of the commitment-trust theory of relationship marketing (Key mediating variable) of Morgan and Hunt (1994) was applied, with the inclusion of the construct power. Initially it was carried out a qualitative research, which contributed to a greater knowledge of the pharmaceutical context and a second qualitative research to assess the constructs and their indicators. Next, it was carried out a quantitative research, which consisted of personal interviews with those responsible for purchasing the medicines to the pharmacies and drugstores, to obtain data in order to apply the theoretical model in the pharmaceutical context. The main statistical technique used was structural equation modeling with the software SmartPLS. The results indicate that the construct power can be part of the model, and confirm that trust and commitment are mediators constructs of the relationship. Among several interesting findings were noted: the need for greater communication and cooperation between the parties, the inverse relation between the degree of commitment and the propensity to leave the relationship, the relation between trust and cooperation and between trust and commitment between the involved parties. The model should be tested in future research with a greater enrichment of the constructs used, both in the pharmaceutical context in other localities, as in other sectors of activity that is relevant to the analysis of relationship marketing actions. Marketing professionals can assess the relationship with theirs business partners with the application of the studied model and identify strategic guidelines for the strengthening of this relationship.

"No meio do caminho tinha um ruído" : um estudo de caso sobre o ruído de comunicação nas relações de vendas técnicas da cadeia de celulose e papel

Oliveira, Andrea Fortes de January 2010 (has links)
A Comunicação, dos “Ps” do Marketing, Promotion, trata do intercâmbio de informações entre sujeitos. No caso da Comunicação entre Empresas (B2B), os sujeitos, ditos emissor e receptor, têm papéis e necessidades diferentes daqueles que possuem em suas vidas cotidianas, como consumidores finais de um produto. Quando se comunicam dentro de um ambiente corporativo, compradores e vendedores vêem-se diante de desafios importantes, como os de comprar/vender bens de alto valor para um processo industrial complexo e, normalmente, com grandes riscos envolvidos. O ambiente dessas relações entre empresas chama-se Marketing Industrial. Entender como funciona o comportamento de um vendedor e de um comprador organizacional pode ser estratégico para uma organização. Mais ainda, identificar potenciais ruídos de comunicação entre o que é dito/visto por um vendedor X (versus?) o que é percebido por um comprador de uma empresa cliente pode aproximar ainda mais as duas partes, diminuir gaps de entendimento e aumentar a eficiência da máquina produtiva. É para isto que foi feito este estudo. Para identificar potenciais ruídos de comunicação entre uma empresa vendedora de produtos e serviços da cadeia de celulose e papel e dois de seus clientes, e sugerir ações que possam melhorar o fluxo de comunicação entre as partes estudadas. / The Communication, the "Ps" of Marketing, Promotion, addresses the exchange of information between subjects. In the case of communication between companies (B2B), the subjects, so called communicator and receiver, play different roles and needs from those performed by both in their daily lives, as final consumers of a product. When they communicate within a corporate environment, buyers and sellers face major challenges, such as those related to the purchasing/selling of goods with high added value to a complex industrial process and, normally, with high added value and major risks involved. The relationship environment between the two companies involved is called Industrial Marketing. To understand what the organizational behavior of a seller and a buyer is like may be strategic for an organization. Furthermore, to be able to identify the potential noises in the communication between what is said / perceived by a seller X, and that that is perceived by a purchaser of a client company can increasingly draw near the two parties involved, reducing the understanding gaps and, with that, increase the efficiency of the productive machine. This is the aim of the current study: identify potential noises in communication between a company which sells products and services from a chain of cellulose and paper and two of its clients and, with that, recommend actions that can enhance the flow of communication between the studied parties.
