  • After all, it was Peter Drucker who advocated that, "because the purpose of business is to create and keep a customer, the business enterprise has two and only two basic functions: marketing and innovation. Marketing and innovation produce results; all the rest are costs. Marketing is the distinguishing, unique function of the business." Why should companies therefore focus on decoding the sensors? What relevance does it have either for marketing or innovation?
    Both marketing and innovations depend on teams of people working well together.

    The sensors, and the science built upon them, help us to understand those teams and their functions and problems. So this applies to marketing and innovation as well.
