Handbook of Management Scales/Intelligence dissemination
Intelligence dissemination (alpha = 0.75)
In order to improve operationalization and psychometric properties, a market orientation scale (MARKOR) taken from Kohli et al. (1993) is modified. The resulting market orientation scale (MO) has three dimensions: intelligence generation, intelligence dissemination, and responsiveness.
- Marketing personnel in our business unit spend time discussing customers' future needs with other functional departments.
- Our business unit periodically circulates documents (e.g., reports, newsletters) that provide information on our customers.
- We have cross-functional meetings very often to discuss market trends and developments (e.g., customers, competition, suppliers).
- We regularly have interdepartmental meetings to update our knowledge of regulatory requirements.
- Technical people in the business unit spend a lot of time sharing information about technology for new products with other departments.
- Market information spreads quickly through all levels in this business unit.
