History of marketing thought In the s and 50s, marketing was dominated by the so-called classical schools of thought which were highly descriptive and relied heavily on case study approaches with only occasional use of interview methods. At the end of the s, two important reports criticised marketing for its lack of methodological rigor, especially the failure to adopt mathematically-oriented behavioural science research methods.
Checking item on blockchain explorer. These data silos discourage interoperability and open standards, rarely cover a product's full supply chain, and are often unable to capture the first mile from the original source. There are some exceptions.
Among them, Tally-O allows organisations to track the origin of their fish within their processing facilities. The data is then encoded and printed on the label and imported again in the next facility that also uses Tally-O.
Open standards allow Provenance and other providers to create common interfaces for ERP software. Interoperability Standards allow unconnected systems to communicate using the same language, structures and identifiers. GS1for example, manages a closed set of global standards for most supply chain concepts such as barcodes and shipping container codes.
There are, however, very few standards for identifying individual instances of products or their history. We are working Adoption process in consumer behaviour develop this as a community-owned, open standard. A unique ID in our system takes the form of an address on the blockchain.
More than a simple identifier, fetching the data stored at that address on the blockchain allows any entity to access details about that particular item.
It is thus interoperable by default — as long as each entity along the chain commits its transaction to the blockchain in some fashion, the platform or system they use to access the blockchain is irrelevant.
It should also be the SSOT for the full ownership history of each item from first mile to end consumer i. By digitising the supply chain at the first milethese items will be sold along with a digital record.
The record will be held on the blockchain, accessible to anyone with the unique identifier attached to the item as a QR CodeRFID tag or using any other hardware technology.
Registering new or transformed items Provenance integrates with existing systems. When raw materials are processed and turned into new products, the corresponding assets on the blockchain need to be updated or transformed accordingly.
For example, a whole fish whose catch was registered to the blockchain initially will leave the factory in multiple cans, which will each need their subsequent sale tracked separately.
We will implement the concept of process as a contract on the blockchain to handle this. To counteract malicious processing, open-source conditions will be defined, publicly enforced by the contract. Tally-O uses mass balancing to account for the amounts of ingredients used in the transformation.
For example, the calculation for a can of Fair Trade skipjack tuna might be g of certified skipjack tuna and 10ml of olive oil. The details of this calculation will be sent to the process contract once the transformation has taken place, and the identifier then encoded in a label that will be passed with the transformed product down the chain.The first of a three part series, Conversity has created a paper exploring the dual challenge of addressing the decline in productivity and consumer spending alongside the leading role that intelligent guided selling and technology has to play in the future of retail.

Introduction. Individual decision-making about consumption has been the subject of many theories and approaches. In this paper, we are interested to propose some steps to include consumer decision making and behaviour in formal models, trying to do this in a .
