Digital Strategy Consulting for Executives to boot
The Internet, mobility and accessibility have upended traditional command and control marketing. The pendulum has shifted dramatically to individuals. Individuals as consumers and individuals as the voice of the company.
Some companies have adapted to this evolution. Many have not. And senior executives are most guilty of not embracing this new era. Some feel there is no need but many are just fearful of tackling something they are unfamiliar with.
