The successful marketing strategies of German companies in the UK
Article publication date: 1 February 2000
Presents the findings of a study of the successful international marketing strategies and headquarter‐subsidiary relationships of 186 German companies operating in the UK. A strong product orientation combined with a high level of market orientation was found to characterise successful German companies in the UK. Whilst both successful and less successful companies were found to adopt an ethnocentric approach with regard to strategic and product‐related issues the top performers did enjoy greater financial independence and a high degree of autonomy in day‐to‐day marketing decision making.
