A shift in Marketing Strategy

Whether we have observed it or not, in marketing the shift from product to the customer already progressed in the last two decades. Mc-Kinsey and co acknowledged it first 2009 by introducing CDJ (Consumer Decision Journey) model, later HBR published Rethinking Marketing in 2010 outlining this shift. If a brand is not on the right side of below shift, there is a big chance it will be left out by the consumer soon.
