Old School vs. Innovative Management Styles By Geoff De Weaver, CEO + Founder Touchpoint Entertainment Inc. Humans have been buying, selling, marketing and trading both goods and services for over a millennium. Over that entire period, we have always believed that a single unit of a given product or service could be used by only one customer at a time. And, to sell more products or services you need to make more, sell and market more. Obviously, this meant any increase in production required a proportionate increase in marketing, labor, resources, equipment and tech.
