The power of one: Companies give consumers new ways to customize – 02/26/11
From the article: Blame it on Starbucks. Consumers seem to be looking for ways to personalize everything they buy. It's not just picking apps for their phones, special touches for their shoes or music for their iPods, but down to customizing everything from mashed potatoes to the water they drink….Alexander Chernev, an associate professor of marketing at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management, said consumers derive "additional utility or value" in doing something themselves. Chernev, who studies consumer behavior, calls it "the Ikea effect" because buyers got to assemble their own furniture. Manufacturers traditionally developed products based on consumer tastes, Chernev said. But as preferences became highly fragmented, companies decided that the only answer was to outsource the customization to consumers themselves.

From the article: Today, Midway ranks among the nation’s busiest airports, serving more than 17.5 million people in 2010 alone. But this wasn’t always the case. In fact, Midway wasn’t even called Midway when the airport opened in 1927, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation. Only after World War II’s Battle of Midway did the airport get its name. “The changes at Midway have been quite dramatic,” said Aaron Gellman, a professor at Northwestern University’s Transportation Center and Kellogg School of Management. “Midway was really a very ground-level operation.”
