Conventional and Extended Versions of Means-end Chain Theory

Elena Borgardt

Streszczenie


Tytuł artykułu: Tradycyjne i rozszerzone wersje teorii łańcucha środków i celów

W artykule podjęto próbę zbadania złożoności i znaczenia opartego na modelu kognitywnym łańcucha środków i celów. Celem artykułu jest przeprowadzenie szczegółowego porównania obecnie stosowanych podejść związanych z analizą łańcucha środków i celów, zbadanie dostępnych modeli zgodnych z tą teorią, ujawnienie luk pojęciowych i przedstawienie kierunków przyszłych badań.
W większości prac na temat łańcucha środków i celów autorzy skupiają się na technicznych aspektach teorii lub interakcji łańcucha z wartościami osobowymi. Prezentowane opracowanie umożliwia spojrzenie na łańcuch środków i celów z nowej perspektywy dzięki włączeniu do teorii poziomów mikro i makro. Autorka dokonuje krytycznej oceny literatury naukowej i określa metodologię, skupiając się na technikach drabinowych, metodach i programach statystycznych do tworzenia hierarchicznych map wartości.
Szczególną uwagę poświęcono rozszerzonym modelom łańcucha środków i celów łączącym się ze skalami wartości (RVS, LOV), narzędziami wykorzystywanymi do badania stylu życia (AIO, RISC, CCA, FRL itp.) i modelami dualnego procesu przetwarzania informacji (model prawdopodobieństwa przetwarzania przekazu perswazyjnego, model heurystyczno-systematyczny) oraz teorii planowanego działania, aby zaprezentować podejścia dominujące we współczesnym marketingu i badaniach konsumenckich. Wyniki badań wskazują na możliwość zwiększenia wszechstronności zastosowań łańcucha środków i celów przez włączenie do teorii poziomów mikro i makro.
