Adapt or fail: The shifting nature and evolution of customer identity

In the past, the customer journey was thought to be, or at least accepted as, primarily linear — meaning customers followed a predictable path to purchase over and over.  For example, an individual might see a commercial, research the product online and head into the store to purchase it.
