This proceedings volume examines transformation in marketing to better understand current and future standing of the marketing field. From whether there is a need for transformation in our field; what methodological transformations are necessary; historical looks at how the field has transformed and continues to transform; how learning institutes are transforming and how marketing theory, practice, consumption practices and people are transforming as the world continues to change. It is by understanding these changes and transformations that marketers have a better knowledge of the discipline. Featuring the full proceedings from the 2017 Academy of Marketing Science (AMS) World Marketing Congress (WMC) held in Christchurch, New Zealand, this book contains research from scholars and practitioners from around the globe analyzing the need and drivers of transformation in marketing.
