Episode 25: Stay Nimble By Always Listening
Continuing our discussion of what sets agile brands apart. “The customer is always right” is a cliché we’ve all heard countless times.

To be nimble and react to what your current and prospective customers say, what your competitors do, and what your critics write, you must be prepared to listen, analyze and adjust what you’re doing at a moment’s notice. So, keep in mind the point above about using data throughout your processes.
