The latest book "Re-imagine" by Tom Peters is an iconoclastic, even nihilistic, rant, as its author is proud to proclaim. Peters proposes that companies must define their purpose and value proposition in a crowded marketplace, constantly reinventing themselves to stay relevant. A failure to embrace the opportunities created by new technologies or a failure to monitor closely the needs and desires of the young will lead to marginalisation. Peters sees a much greater role for women both in the workforce and as consumers and influencers of products and services.
