"How are you changing my world today?"
The rules of consumer engagement have changed. Your customers no longer care about legacy - what matters to them is how you are innovating into their world today. The classic "solve a problem" approach that industry giants have always employed is no longer relevant. Consumers want switched-on, creative responses to their needs and desires.
In Relentlessly Relevant - 50 Ways to Innovate, professional speaker and business guru Douglas Kruger explores the field of innovation, reducing its subject matter to the simple starting points you need to become an industry trendsetter. It pinpoints the levers within your own business crying out for innovation as well as the bits you should leave alone at all costs, and it teaches you to change your traditional way of thinking, altering how you relate to your customers' immediate reality. Using examples from local and international brands, this book shows you don't have to be a tech giant to innovate, but you do need to know how to think in the right patterns. This is a business imperative. Innovators of today will own their industries tomorrow by constantly asking, "How can we become relentlessly relevant?"

Some good ideas duty a lot of contradictory information and mainly directed to managers. The book is only part a book on innovation, the rest is branding and marketing.
It helped to shift one's mind to another way of thinking. Very inspirational and entertaining
