This Can't Be Retail
This Can't Be Retail
Having done extensive work globally on the future of retail, we were approached with helping a company to proactively adapt to the changing context of the retail sector.
Using a process of strategic disruption, we shared our insights on the future of retail and customer engagement. This was followed by a session mapping out the companies competitive positioning, market segmentation as well as its potential for differentiation. We co-created an innovative strategy that has allowed the company to reposition itself in the market
Feedback from the CEO: WOW! At a time when we felt quite overwhelmed, The Strategists provided deep insight into our sector, the cognitive mindsets of our clients, the impact of technology as well as how to navigate all of this complexity. We came in confused but left with a sense of purpose, an exciting strategy that has really shifted the market and a unified team. I am truly grateful

We are moving into a discontinuous, disruptive, digital world underpinned by rapid disintermediation and sector shifts. Large firms and industries as a whole are faced with developing this muscle and building an innovation culture that adapts and overcomes while also remaining profitable and seeing growth.
