Abstract

Purpose

The paper seeks to present discussion on laddering application in the practice of marketing, considering both academic and market researches.

Design/methodology/approach

It provides summary points of laddering as a qualitative research technique and the importance it can have in better understanding behaviour.

Findings

The paper argues that laddering is a useful and powerful technique but still underused by scholars and practitioners. The authors consider that the main apparent barriers precluding its proper use can be related to the following aspects: time‐consuming and expensive interviews; artificial set of answers; researcher biases; and simplistic analysis of the results.

Originality/value

This paper contributes to a better practice of laddering since it highlights its limitations and suggests alternatives to cope with them.

Abstract

Purpose

The objective of this paper is to study how marketing professors see their job. How they assess their career paths, the reasons, and motivations underlying their professional choice, their points of view on the practices they employ, and their problems and difficulties, as well as the solutions they have found during the course of their professional development.

Design/methodology/approach

This study is exploratory and qualitative. Grounded theory technique was employed to collect and analyse the data.

Findings

There is a substantial diversity of professional paths and a quest for satisfaction and pleasure associated with the relative freedom and lower stress of the teaching profession, as compared to executive life.

Research limitations/implications

The exploratory and non‐conclusive nature hinder the findings to be generalised and the wideness of the problem making the analysis broad but not deep.

Practical implications

Understand marketing professors and raise some ideas about how to improve teaching performance.

Originality/value

The work should be of interest to academics, professors and educational organizations seeking to improve marketing teaching and learning.
