In the connected consumer universe of today, traditional and existing business strategies need to keep reinventing and evolving. Sharing of information and insights can enable retailers to actively influence and manage shoppers’ motivations, inclinations and paths-to-purchase with peers and channel partners. In an age where consumers are outpacing brands and retailers, regardless of size or capability, growth cannot be created in isolation. More than ever before, retailers must connect, not compete, on insights to create a whole new change of management system that benefits all. The consumer is really who you have to outsmart, not the competitor. The MRF 2015 theme of ‘Connect, Share, Evolve’ is therefore, designed to promote knowledge collaboration among retail businesses because collective wisdom is collective power.
