Since 2008, there has been a wholesale revolution in how services and goods are purchased. In every marketplace, buyers are more hesitant: as consumers, as purchasers, even as potential employers. The rise in consensus decision making, the speed with which people move from job to job, and the increasing sophistication of cost-control are all creating real problems for those who have relied on trusted relationships for their next opportunity.
