The retail sector is rapidly transforming and changing consumer habits.
For local speciality retailers and global behemoths alike, the retail sector is rapidly transforming. Changing consumer habits, emerging technologies, the rise of e-commerce, and omnichannel retail are all coming together to create new realities in the retail space.
These changes require new forms of leadership – and qualified people to see companies through these changes. Today, retail leaders are required to have a keen understanding of the often vastly different markets in which they operate as well as the skills and insight required to formulate strategies that take into account the digital and social trends that are shaping tomorrow. These retail leaders must have the ability to analyse emerging trends, confidently make future forecasts and take an organisation into an uncertain future.
