Very interesting interview which highlights the importance to fully understand the changes that the digitization process is driving.
Internet, new technologies, social media are profoundly changing the rules of business, marketing techniques, and especially the relationship between Brands and target.
As Philip Kotler said: " The most important thing is to forecast where customers are moving and to be in front of them”.
