It's a busy time to be a decision-maker in the retail space – a role under increasing pressure and scrutiny. The need to keep up with trends is critical – within retail, and also in society, and technology more widely. So it’s no surprise that it’s not only the top retailers who rely on consultants to help them with this insight.
A CIO from a leading Tier 1 UK retailer recently confided in us that they spend more on consultants than they do on the actual technology, and are able to prove this value at board-level.
Retail influencers are currently the most powerful people in UK retail, the ones that actually drive real change and innovation within the retailers. These are the people you need to engage, in order to be able to influence them yourself. But first of all, you need to know who they are, and to have complete confidence that you know which retailer uses which retail consultancy.
