Looks like change is here to stay in retail. But rather than see it as anxiety producing and painful, why not look at it as fun, an adventure, an adrenaline shot. It’s a highwire walk without a net. And it’s also the way to thrive as a retailer in 2018.

This goes way beyond embracing the empowered consumer, the endless aisle, mobile influence. This is about turning your world upside down, latching onto the newest technologies and strategies, being ready to fail fast and being ready to scale up successes.

Have a read. You’ll never be the same again.
