Question description

This question is in reference to the assignment you just turned in to me.  

Your final paragraph, "This research is of great significance to the theory on marketing strategy development. This is because according to the research, organizations need to be highly adaptive and oriented in order to effectively compete in the market.  This can only be achieved through a good and efficient marketing strategy, which will enable the organization to be very adaptable to different market environments hence improving their performance" jumped out. Do you believe in this case research was of great significance or in all cases and companies? Do you believe that is an area that too much emphasis is placed on? Why or why not?
