CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1      BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

A group consist of people who have a sense of relatedness as a result of interaction with each other. Not every collection of individuals is a group as the term is used by sociologists. Actually, we can distinguish three different collections    of people; aggregations, categories, and groups. An aggregations, categories, and groups. An aggregation is any number of people who are in close proximity to one another at a given time. While a category is any number of people who have some particular attributes in common. Groups  can be classified by content of function , by degree of personal involvement , and by degree of organization. Group properties consist of status norms, role, socialization,  and power.

Consumers conformity can be shaped by three different types of reference group influences; informational, normative and identification. It is important   to distinguish among these types, since the marketing strategy required depends on the type of influence involved. Informational influence; Informational influence occurs when an individual uses the behaviours and opinions of reference group members as potentially useful bits of information. This influence is based on either the similarity of the group members to the individual or the expertise of the influencing group member. Thus a person may notice several members of a given group using a particular brand of coffee,  he or she may then decide

To try that brand simply because there is evidence that it may be a  good brand. Or one may decide to purchase a particular brand model of computer because of friend who is very knowledge able about computers owns or recommend it. In this case conformity is the result of information shared by the group members

Normative influence; Normative influence sometimes referred to ask utilitarian influence, occurs when an individual fulfills group expectations to gain. A direct reward or to avoid a sanction. One may  purchase a particular brand of clothing to win approval from your colleagues. Or you may refrain from wearing the latest fashion for fear for teasing by friends. The essence of normative influence is the presence of a direct reward or sanction.

Identification influence; Identification influence also called value  expressive  influence occurs when individuals have internalized  the groups values and norms.These then guide the individuals behavior without any thought of reference group sanctions or rewards. The individual has accepted the groups value as his or her own. The individual behaves in a manner consistent with the groups values because the individuals values and the groups values are the same. The research therefore seek to provide an  evaluation    of group   behavior for organizational effectiveness and efficiency.
