Instantly recognizable as the company behind such familiar products as Ivory soap, Tide detergent and Crest toothpaste, Procter & Gamble is admired as one of the world's best managed companies. Marketing training at P&G rivals that of an MBA degree, and Harvard Business School teaches P&G's brand-management system. Now, a former P&G marketing executive identifies ninety-nine practices and principles that fuel this $35 billion powerhouse -- strategies for success in business and in life. As a brand manager, Charles Decker saw P&G wisdom at work from the inside. For this book, he interviewed dozens of ex-"Proctoids," as they call themselves, to incorporate their perspectives on P&G. Here are the beliefs ("A brand can't stand still"), the code of business conduct ("Do the right thing") and the rules of engagement for television advertising ("Show the package in the first eight seconds") that are at the heart of this marketing giant. Here are anecdotes of a corporate culture where winning is the goal, risk avoidance the criterion, and the airtight memo the basis for action. Accessible and engaging, WINNING WITH THE P&G 99 offers the time-tested strategies that have kept P&G on top -- practical insights for anyone managing a business, a career, or striving for a personal best.

Über den Autor (1998)

Charles L. Decker manages a consulting and focus-group research business. After graduating from Dartmouth College and serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, he joined Procter & Gamble and was promoted to brand manager in less than three years. P&G's marketing and management principles and practices served him equally well at Oglivy & Mather where, as management supervisor of the Kimberly-Clark account, he and his team achieved extraordinary success for the Huggies Disposable Diaper brand, a direct competitor of P&G's Pampers and Luvs. He was also executive vice president at Bates Worldwide, and director of their Latin American network of agencies.
