We abandoned all organization diagnosis models and conducted Mcleod and Rogers Model as one of the most popular models in similar researches. Since marketing affairs is more important and sensible in food industry than others, the research was done in this sector. We collected data by a questionnaire developed based on the research model with a sample of 120 people consisting of marketing managers and expertise from the statistical society.

Some of the big weaknesses are using old hardware, diagnoses in marketing operations, not having enough support from executive managers and enough accessibility to marketing information resources.
