The consumer and retail sectors have been facing a combination of unprecedented challenges in the face of pronounced market shifts, including digitization, globalization, demographic change, maturing economies vs emerging markets. For every organization, whether large or small, global or local, pinpointing the right strategy and ensuring its successful execution against such a backdrop continues to be a huge challenge.
These market shifts are making their mark. The traditional retail business model has undergone a complete revolution, with online, mobile, and discount all changing the dynamics for high street retailers who must ensure that they remain relevant and competitive. Consumer goods companies grapple with fast-changing consumer demand while addressing the opportunities and challenges presented by new channels to market. New entrants to the marketplace drive innovation while facing all the intricacies of scaling and transitioning founding teams into a different phase.
