Consumption in China: Ten Trends for the Next 10 Years

Consumption in China: Ten Trends for the Next 10 Years | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it
China’s economy will undergo massive changes in the coming decade that will transform how people consume goods and services. With significant government support, the country will continue to migrate from an investment- driven model to a consumption- and services-driven model. It will shift from a relatively younger to a relatively older population. China will advance from being a manufacturing powerhouse to an active leader in digital innovation—a path it has already started down. And consumer attitudes will continue to evolve from a price-sensitive mindset, even as distinctions between Chinese and Western lifestyles remain. It all will have huge implications for multinational and domestic businesses alike.

“Startnership” success, however, is all too rare. The majority of aspiring start-up partnerships I see go horribly and expensively wrong. Mismanaged expectations, blown budgets, slipped schedules, and mutual contempt run rampant. With apologies to Tolstoy, all happy start-up partnerships are alike; every unhappy innovation partnership is unhappy in its own way.

Zero Based Supply Chain

Zero Based Supply Chain | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

They achieve three to four percent in category reductions year after year, yet, most never make a sustainable bottom line impact on COGS that would foster true competitive agility.
Leading companies are breaking this cycle with ZBSC (zero-based supply chain)—part of ZBx (zero-based mindset), a way to drive profitability that emphasizes the future over the past. ZBSC can help companies capture supply chain value in a rapidly changing world.
