It’s an exciting time to be in retail. Challenging? Certainly. But also rife with opportunity. Online retailers are opening brick and mortar locations. Traditional retailers are repurposing shelves for advertising revenue. If you can dream it, you can try it.

Technology is driving new business models, extracting more revenue from existing ones, and turning retailers into innovators. Agile principles that began in the software industry have taken widespread hold across the business world. The idea is to deliver an experience, collect feedback from customers, and iterate often toward continuous improvement. No business can afford to sit still while competitors try new approaches, create new brand territories, adjust to customer feedback, and evolve into market leaders.
