A note from this koob’s author Pauline Kraus:
"I found this book interesting because it puts into perspective the evolution of business models (product-centric and customer-centric) from Fordism to the present day by taking into account societal changes. The examples, mostly taken from the in-store sales model, are quite enlightening and show the challenges of a shift to a customer-centric model. I particularly appreciated the passage that shows what local businesses have to learn from large companies that tend to anonymize the customer. I recommend that all entrepreneurs who want to know how to make the transition from product-centricity to customer-centricity read this book."
