Managing partner, UK, Kurt Salmon Associates

“Next year’s success stories will be those companies with the slickest supply chains that can take a new trend and get it delivered in store or online in record time. While many companies talk about “speed to market”, few do it well, and as it is a major differentiator we expect to see retailers adopt more radical, structural changes to drive further cost reductions and reduce time to market.  With potentially even less disposable income available, the emphasis will be on creating a complete customer experience in store with product assortments tailored to meet local demographics to maximise sales.  Expansion overseas will also be back onto the agenda.”
