A Study of 46,000 Shoppers Shows That Omnichannel Retailing Works

The more channels they use, the more money they spend.
Christopher Sachse Aaris's insight:
Huge study suggests that omnichannel retailing works and "omnichannel shoppers" are more loyal and spend more but was this already the case for that group of customers before the introduction of a plethora of channels? 

"There is one important caveat to our findings. The correlations we report here shouldn’t be confused with causation. We can say from our study that omnichannel shoppers are more valuable to the retailer with confidence. But whether such customers were loyal and engaged with the retailer to begin with or whether the richer, multi-touchpoint shopping experiences of its omnichannels led them to spend, return, and advocate more remains an open question"

1. Do not face disruption alone. Deepen and broaden partnerships with customers, providers, and a diverse array of companies in and beyond your core industry 

2. Make yourself indispensable. Use your company’s focus and expertise to become a critical part of the integrated solutions that customers demand Embrace operational flexibility. 

3. Consider what organizational changes you will need to be more collaborative and open—both in terms of your processes and your employee mind-sets

Has the Fourth Industrial Revolution really begun? | Information Age

Has the Fourth Industrial Revolution really begun? | Information Age | Induce | Scoop.it

As if we had not already heard everything noble or noteworthy about the virtues of digital transformation, we are now being subjected to its big brother. Richard Lee writes


"The vast majority of leaders today do not have the skills or acumen to lead in the 21st century, and our next generation of leadership candidates is woefully unprepared as well"

Christopher Sachse Aaris's insight:
Perhaps the pace of radical transformation as a result of digital has left the gap between today's and the next generation leaders too big to spark the fourth industrial revoultion?

One group has experience but not the skills to lead in the 21st century and the other simply still unprepared.

Digital transformation is a survival issue | The Enterprisers Project

Digital transformation is a survival issue | The Enterprisers Project | Induce | Scoop.it
When faced with a business challenge, business leaders often have a good idea where they need to go and how they must evolve. But there is often a mismatch in how prepared they perceive their organization to be, and the cold, hard reality within their walls. This is especially true when it comes to the challenges associated with the way digital technology is reshaping our future.
Christopher Sachse Aaris's insight:

The fact is, change takes time. There will always be stakeholders who are resistant to change, and they can slow, or in some cases, even stall the pace of evolution for the entire enterprise. You may have all the necessary systems in place for change, but if your people are not exploiting them, your organization will remain stuck in its legacy ways.
