This chapter describes how, over the past century, marketing has splintered into numerous subfields and identifies market forces that are now forcing them to re-converge. Subfields such as advertising, direct marketing, CRM, and marketing research are expanding their scope and borrowing approaches from sibling fields. We propose a process for managing across all customer touch points that incorporates key concepts and methods from the converging subfields.
