Page no.4 What is Flat TrendIn a typical trending market there will be good pushes up or down followed by shortspells of flat or opposing movement.

Page no.9 Customer focus“There is only one boss- customer. And he can fire everybody in the company- fromchairman to on down-simply by spending his money somewhere else.” “Sam Walton”Organization that recognize the important of customers and focus on their wants andneeds are commonly referred to as being customer focus or customer driven. In businessliterature, the customer driven and market driven are often used interchangeably;however, a customer-driven organization focuses more on the care and retention ofexisting customers whereas the market –driven by organization is more attuned toattracting new customers and serving their needs.In best in class organization, virtually every activity is undertaken with customers’interest in mind. It is important to note that undertaking virtually every activity withcustomers’ interest in mind does not imply that an organization should do so at afinancial loss. After all organization that re not profitable ultimately ceases to dobusiness.Today , most quality professional consider the customer to be any individual or groupthat receives and must be satisfied with the service, work product, output of a process. Inother words the customer is the individual or group whose requirements a process isintended to full fill.Gryna broadly describes a customer as “Anyone who is affected by the product or process”Clearly this definition includes more than just those who receive the output of a process.The Quality Control /Assurance Professional must realize that a process and its outputtouch many people both within and beyond organization boundaries.

According to them,while many companies primarily focus on going one-up on the competition, the best wayto compete is to stop trying to beat the competition. Markets are typically classified intored oceans (known or existing markets) and blue oceans (non-existent, unknown oruntapped markets). In red oceans, companies will try to take market share from eachother while blue oceans represent highly profitable growth markets as the boundaries areyet to be defined. Our market executives must utilize the Blue Ocean Strategy tomaximize volume of customers.
