Leo, Cheryl & Russell-Bennett, Rebekah (2007) Customer-oriented Defiance (COD): Exploring Righteous, Sacrificing and Sneaky Behaviours. In 2007 Australia And New Zealand Marketing Academy Conference (ANZMAC), 3-5 December 2007, Dunedin, New Zealand.
This paper qualitatively explores the phenomenon of Customer-Oriented Defiance (COD) and reports the implications to theory and research. The study involves in-depth interviews with 21 frontline service employees. The results show that frontline employees in service industries exhibited COD. They exist in three forms; righteous, sacrificial and sneaky behaviours. The findings provide the foundation for future research and extend existing literature on positive deviance into a services marketing context.
