The Purpose of Business The relationship you have with your customers is central to the purpose of your business. Peter Drucker wrote: “If we want to know what a business is we have to start with its purpose. In other words, the business must find a potential need that exists within the society it operates and create the desire to fill that need in people. Drucker continued his observations: “Because it is its purpose to create a customer, any business enterprise has two—and only these two—basic functions: marketing and innovation.

You create a customer by marketing a need to them—turning a potentiality into an actuality—and then fulfill the need through innovating a product. The Foundation of The Relationship.
