Life Cycle Management in a Democracy - Bihar as a Case Study

Life Cycle Management in a Democracy - Bihar as a Case Study
When we were first exposed to the concepts of Life Cycle Management in books, we never realized that the applications could be applied to so many diverse things. Well,on anything that qualifies as a brand. The concept said, that brands have to reinvent newer benefits to the consumer, else, they would taper out in favour of others. How will that happen is just a matter of technicality.
Well, Chennai rained on 22nd Nov, and the much awaited India South Africa OD cricket match was a washout, but the best scores that day emerged was from Bihar. A headline in a newspaper here in Chennai said "Lalu looses, India wins". Well, perceptions on a brand.Once again, the same principles apply to the new brand. And I hope the new leadership reads these principles from a Kotler so that they do not suffer the same fate as the previous rulers of Patliputra. For that matter, those who rule the other states as well.
