The Shopping Revolution: How Successful Retailers Win Customers in an Era of Endless Disruption.

Does the “retail apocalypse” that many people are proclaiming signal the end of traditional brick-and-mortar retail? Yes, traditional brick-and-mortar retailers that make shopping more difficult, offer sub-standard products at higher prices, and have little to entice shoppers will probably struggle. But, those that can offer consumers – whose expectations are growing ever higher – more value than their competition can do well. This presentation will examine the companies that have thrived during this wave of change and offer insights into what we can learn from their ascendance. The “Kahn Retailing Success Matrix” will provide a framework that any company can use to create a competitive strategy to survive and thrive in today’s – and tomorrow’s – retail environment.

The Shopping Revolution: How Successful Retailers Win Customers in an Era of Endless Disruption.

Does the “retail apocalypse” that many people are proclaiming signal the end of traditional brick-and-mortar retail?

The answer is yes and no. Yes, traditional brick-and-mortar retailers that make shopping more difficult, offer sub-standard products at higher prices, and have little to entice shoppers to their stores will probably struggle. But, brick-and-mortar retailers that can offer consumers something of value better than other competition can do well.

We are just witnessing the start of radical changes in retail that will revolutionize shopping in every way. Customers’ expectations are being ratcheted up, making winning (and keeping) those customers all the more challenging.

I will examine the companies that have been most successful during this wave of change and offer insights into what we can learn from their ascendance. Building on these insights, I will present the “Kahn Retailing Success Matrix” which provides a framework that any company can use to create a competitive strategy to survive and thrive in today’s – and tomorrow’s retail environment.
