Empirical data were collected by a survey of 300 domestic organizations and the results were compared to the ones of a similar research conducted five years before.

Among them the most marketing-related resource dimension, called market management, excels regarding the strength of the association with competitiveness. Clusters of companies were formulated and analyzed. A small group of the companies investigated (12%) managed to advance in the development and possession of marketing resources whilst maintaining competitive product supply and price.
