matter what your product is, you are ultimately in the education business. Your
customers need to be constantly educated about the many advantages of doing business
with you, trained to use your products more effectively, and taught how to make
never-ending improvement in their lives.
G Allen - Products
In the end, the customer doesn't know, or
care, if you are small or large as an organisation..

on the rail in the store.
Armani - Companies
It is a fact that, in the West, we live
in a capitalist society, but that does not
mean that we cannot be guided by the idea
of a social conscience in our work. Yes,
fashion design requires consumers to consume,
but we can do our bit for society by running
our companies in a socially
responsible way, and by creating products
that promote respect for social and environmental
issues. There is also the possibility for
power and influence to be a force for change.
Armani - Design

Arnault - Luxury

think they could do the day before.
Ballmer - Technology

Ballmer - Products
The sources of deflation are not a mystery.
Deflation is in almost all cases a side
effect of a collapse of aggregate demand..
a drop in spending so severe that producers
must cut prices on an ongoing basis in order
to find buyers.
Bernanke - Finance
A single factory, potentially capable of
supplying a whole continent with its particular
product, cannot afford to wait until the
public asks for its product; it must maintain
constant touch, through advertising and
propaganda, with the vast public in order
to assure itself the continuous demand which
alone will make its costly plant profitable.
Bernays - Propaganda
Mass production is only profitable if its
rhythm can be maintained.. that is, if it
can continue to sell its product in steady
or increasing quantity. The result is that
while, under the handicraft or small-unit
system of production that was typical a
century ago, demand created the supply,
today supply must actively seek to create
its corresponding demand.
Bernays - Manufacturing
I believe that competition in the future
will not be only an advertising competition
between individual products or between big
associations, but that it will in addition
be a competition of propaganda.
Bernays - Competition
At a time when all the other builders were
selling homes with basements but without
carports, we would sell homes without basements
and with carports. This allowed us to provide
a more appealing product at a lower price.
In other words, we felt we would be giving
customers greater value.

sure that your product is the easiest to
experience and complete a sale.

competition, or you will find your customers
buying from them, not you.
Cuban - Products
The aim of marketing is to know and understand
the customer so well the product or service
fits him and sells itself.
Suppliers and especially manufacturers
have market power because they have information
about a product or a service that the customer
does not and cannot have, and does not need
if he can trust the brand. This explains
the profitability of brands.
Thousands of people were producing new Web
sites every day. We were just trying to
take all that stuff and organize it to make
Filo - Internet
If something is expensive to develop, and
somebody's not going to get paid, it won't
get developed. So you decide: Do you want
software to be written, or not?
Gates - Invention
I think it's fair to say that personal computers
have become the most empowering tool we've
ever created. They're tools of communication,
they're tools of creativity, and they can
be shaped by their user.
Gates - Internet
Microsoft has had its success by doing low-cost
products and constantly improving those
products and we've really redefined the
IT industry to be something that's about
a tool for individuals.
Gates - Products
We are always saying to ourself.. we have
to innovate. We got to come up with that
breakthrough. In fact, the way software
works.. so long as you are using your existing
software.. you don't pay us anything at
all. So we're only paid for breakthroughs.
Gates - Products

use the products but you know along with
success comes the need for a dialogue with

sports clothes that are relatively conservative,
clothes that everyone wears.
Klein - Fashion
When everyone gets something for nothing,
soon no one will have anything, because
no one will be producing anything.
Koch - Socialism
Successful companies create value by providing
products or services their customers value
more highly than available alternatives.
They do this while consuming fewer resources,
leaving more resources available to satisfy
other needs in society. Value creation involves
making peoples lives better. It is
contributing to prosperity in society.
Koch - Business
Many businesses with unpopular products
or inefficient production find it much easier
to curry the favor of a few influential
politicians or a government agency than
to compete in the open market.
Koch - Government
When you think of the blur of all the brands
that are out there, the ones you believe
in and the ones you remember, like Chanel
and Armani, are the ones that stand for
something. Fashion is about establishing
an image that consumers can adapt to their
own individuality. And it's an image that
can change, that can evolve. It doesn't
reinvent itself every two years.
Lauren - Branding
I don't design clothes, I design dreams.
Lauren - Products
The key to longevity is to keep doing what
you do better than anyone else. We work
real hard at that. It's about getting your
message out to the consumer. It's about
getting their trust, but also getting them
excited, again and again. My clothes.. the
clothes we make for the runway.. aren't
concepts. They go into stores. Our stores.
Thankfully, we have lots of them.
Lauren - Products
Work - Trust
Ralph Lauren has always stood for providing
quality products, creating worlds and inviting
people to take part in our dream. We were
the innovators of lifestyle advertisements
that tell a story and the first to create
stores that encourage customers to participate
in that lifestyle.
Lauren - Products
If you're a car salesman, and someone says
"This is a terrible car, I'm not buying
it," it doesn't mean they hate you.
They just don't like your product. I think
that's a mistake a lot of people in show
business make.. they're so tied to their
act they take everything personally.
Leno - Selling
If you stop building stars, which we never
do, you wouldn't be in business.
McMahon - Business
Regardless of how well a studio is run,
it's only as good as the product it produces.
McMahon - Business
There is no room for dictating taste in
the diverse and dynamic world of media.
To limit taste only limits the role we play
for people of all kinds.
Murdoch - Media
Intelligent media companies strive to provide
both intellectual and comedy programs, groundbreaking
and reflective articles, art house and popular
movies. Not to be open minded in providing
a full range of quality media would be a
failure to serve the breadth and depth of
the communities we live in.
Murdoch - Media
I have always believed that technology should
do the hard work - discovery, organization,
communication - so users can do what makes
them happiest: living and loving, not messing
with annoying computers! That means making
our products work together seamlessly.

We understand the need to balance our short-
and longer-term needs because our revenue
is the engine that funds all our innovation.
But over time, our emerging high-usage products
will likely generate significant new revenue
streams for Google as well as for our partners,
just as search does today.

Lets be honest. Theres not a
business anywhere that is without problems.
Business is complicated and imperfect. Every
business everywhere is staffed with imperfect
human beings and exists by providing a product
or service to other imperfect human beings.
Parsons - Problems
Customers don't always know what they want.
The decline in coffee-drinking was due to
the fact that most of the coffee people
bought was stale and they weren't enjoying
it. Once they tasted ours and experienced
what we call "the third place"..
a gathering place between home and work
where they were treated with respect.. they
found we were filling a need they didn't
know they had.
Schultz - Customers
In the 1960s, if you introduced a new product
to America, 90% of the people who viewed
it for the first time believed in the corporate
promise. Then 40 years later if you performed
the same exercise less than 10% of the public
believed it was true. The fracturing of
trust is based on the fact that the consumer
has been let down.
Schultz - Lies
This morning, prompted by increasing concerns
about terrorism, oil prices reached a record
high as the cost of a barrel of crude is
a whopping $44.34. Wow, it seems shocking
that a product of finite supply gets more
expensive the more we use it. Now the terror
alert means higher oil prices, which oddly
enough means higher profits for oil companies
giving them more money to give to politicians
whose policies may favor the oil companies
such as raising the terror alert level.
As Simba once told us: "It's the circle
Stewart - Politicians
I think it's very important that whatever you're trying to make or sell,
or teach has to be basically good. A bad product and you know what? You won't
be here in ten years.
Stewart - Selling
The fact of the matter is that today, stuff-selling
mega-corporations have a huge influence
on our daily lives. And because of the competitive
nature of our global economy, these corporations
are generally only concerned with one thing..
the bottom line. That is, maximizing profit,
regardless of the social or environmental
Suzuki - Companies
Ethics - Social
I think the environment has become more
competitive. That has made Indian industry
more concerned with a) its customers, b)
the quality of its products, and c) its
brand image in the marketplace.
Tata - India
One hundred years from now, I expect the
Tatas to be much bigger than it is now.
More importantly, I hope the Group comes
to be regarded as being the best in India..
best in the manner in which we operate,
best in the products we deliver, and best
in our value systems and ethics. Having
said that, I hope that a hundred years from
now we will spread our wings far beyond
Tata - India
Group - Values
The essence of a successful business is
really quite simple. It is your ability
to offer a product or service that people
will pay for at a price sufficiently above
your costs, ideally three or four or five
times your cost, thereby giving you a profit
that enables you to buy and to offer more
products and services.
Tracy - Success
Customers today want the very most and the very best for the very least amount
of money, and on the best terms. Only the individuals and companies that provide
absolutely excellent products and services at absolutely excellent prices will

the right kind of advertising.
Twain - Advertising
The point to remember about selling things
is that, as well as creating atmosphere
and excitement around your products, you've
got to know what you're selling.
Wilde - Knowledge

as such. Steve
Jobs didn't really set the direction
of my Apple I and Apple II designs but he
did the more important part of turning them
into a product that would change the world.
Wozniak - Computers
It occurred to me that building a company
was the best way to align a group of people
towards building something great. And its
really.. it's a good organizational structure
where you can really reward people. If they're
building something that's good, you can
you work with partners and reward them if
the product that you're developing work
well. It's a good way to get the best people
involved to build something very good.
Zuckerberg - Facebook
