Creating a top line in parallel to the physical way of doing business, especially when physical is monopolized and doing really can be tricky. It is the future that is at stake and not the present. The challenging was to build a incremental approach showcasing rapid successes over relatively short period of time. The pressures from ALJ Oil was to delivers specific products to deliver onto the digital rails being developed. The key was in understanding that each product consisted of individual features.
