The Challenges

Retailers are facing unprecedented transformation in their business models and the playbook is being completely re-written.

Price transparency, innovative fulfillment options and digital native customers are re-setting expectations of service. New generation retailers are adding new technologies while traditional retail is struggling to renovate old stores.

Mere optimization of existing processes is insufficient to create retail organizations that will sustain and grow in the next century.

The Solutions

Competing in the next century: Strategic Imperatives
Retailers that seek to thrive in the next century are likely to employ a mix of the following strategies:

Create and Reward Loyalty

Winning retailers have proven that they can generate superior business growth and customer engagement through improving their analytical and operational rigor in their loyalty programs. Retailers need to deliver on the promise of personalized offers, experiences and pricing to reward loyalty.

Develop Agile Supply Chains

Shorter order to deliver cycles and cost-effective flow of smaller quantities to stores and customers are critical capabilities that winning retailers will need to develop. To achieve this they need to forecast and react better to demand.

Integrate Online and Offline

Retailers must find a way to integrate the value proposition of the on-line and stores presence into a cohesive whole. Developing an understanding of the customer journey and identifying enablers and hindrances in this journey to create this integrated experience and its financial impact is critical for success.
