Concerning research on “Consumer relationship” FC take into account the course of innovation processes in contemporary economics is described based on several diverse – more or less complex theoretical models. Lateral solutions combine theoretical aspects with the practical involvement of consumers in the process of creating new, innovative solutions, which are primarily aimed at their efficient introduction on the market. One of such hybrid models is called User-Driven Innovation, the assumptions of the theory of userdriven innovation are based on identifying and properly capturing consumer needs through the practical application of information flowing from them.
