Agile Retail: Embracing the pace of change

Download to read offline

Today's shoppers exist in a world that moves at an unparalleled and relentless pace. It's time to accept that the store can no longer stand still and, in fact, is never truly “finished.” Brands perceive they can’t afford to experiment when the truth is, they can’t afford not to. Retailers have to be responsive and experimental--that’s agile retail. They have to think like startups and embrace the Silicon Valley approach to 'fail first, fail fast, learn and iterate.’ The good news is technology is emerging to enable agile retail. What’s missing are the tools and processes to disrupt and revolutionize the store design process. In this session, FITCH will debut new methodology that brings agile concepts to the market, present real life examples of current retailers successfully working this model, and show how stores of the future will embrace this change.

  4. 4. 1: WHAT WE MEAN BY AGILE (AND WHAT WE DON’T)
  5. 5. If the past few years have been all about experience, we see the next few as being all about agility. AGILE is abuzz in the world of retail.
  6. 6. taking these experiences we create at retail, and making them more adaptable, more responsive and more nimble AGILE is all about Trey Ratcliffe
  7. 7. get used to seeing AGILE bolted to anything that moves, and hearing that agility as a concept is a kind of panacea for all manner of ills Like all “buzz” words
  8. 8. it’s important to clarify our intent around how we are using the term, and specifically in the context of retail In the face of this AGILE epidemic
  9. 9. AGILE RETAIL ISN’T JUST FAST FASHION Although adopting AGILE thinking may well make a retailer faster, and indeed more fashionable
  10. 10. Our definition of AGILE focuses on the “means” and not just the “end” • process • approach • methodology • tools And the influence working in an AGILE way will have on the design, evolution and development of a new generation of physical stores
  11. 11. This idea… of an AGILE methodology was born in the digital world, and now represents that industry’s standard
  12. 12. characterized by short, intense phases of work, frequent reassessment and adaptation - version after version, constantly in beta A way of working…

  16. 16. 2: WHY AGILE TODAY
  17. 17. We’ve discussed why AGILE thinking is important, but what makes it such a pressing issue today? WHY NOW?
  18. 18. Like most of the changes in our world, the need for AGILE is being driven by emerging and shifting behaviors of next Gen Shoppers Simply put, the audience is demanding it
  19. 19. that Generations Y & Z are underwhelmed with old school retail (cue sudden rush of underutilized selfie walls) We’ve known for a while…

  52. 52. We began work on something called a new prototype. When we were happy with it, we built it. Then kicked the tires. Then value engineered it. Once we decided to make a move

  56. 56. There are numerous problems with this approach… 1: It’s a long tail 2: Resource intensive (and the procurement of those resources is a part of why retail is so slow) 3: Inherently unresponsive 4: Doesn’t anticipate changing shopper behaviors 5: Lack of integration with new/emerging channels

  93. 93. 5: HOW DO WE LIGHT THE FIRE?
  94. 94. At FITCH it became apparent that in order to work in an AGILE way it wasn’t just the client that was going to need to change, it was us.
  95. 95. 1 The typical process today Sequential, phase based, and in the digital industry, referred to as waterfall methodology
  96. 96. 1 One step runs into the next Also known as a “baton pass” process
  97. 97. is the same, you can’t move on from one phase of work until you have completed the one prior… And the principle
  98. 98. With new principles and new activities We recognized the need for a new process
  99. 99. So how do we do it? These are just some of the ways in which we are adapting our thinking to creating AGILE retail for our clients. Sprint Cycles New Measurement & Analytics Rapid Prototyping Road Mapping
  100. 100. LAUNCH, IMPROVE, REPEAT. Adopting these principles under the umbrella approach of
  101. 101. New Activities: Sprint Cycles What if instead of a single brief for a store of the future, our clients hired us for 10 mini briefs, or 20 micro briefs? And what if, because of their size, we were able to execute these briefs in record time? Manifesting themselves in store in weeks not months or years. Briefs which are ideally authored together
  102. 102. 1
  103. 103. 1
  104. 104. New Activities: Measurement& Analytics Real time research live and in-store. Ongoing and iterative. New tools to allow us to track and monitor customer behavior and respond rapidly.
  105. 105. New Activities: Measurement& Analytics
  106. 106. New Activities: Rapid Prototyping The goal is to develop concepts that we can get into stores faster than ever before. And to ask ourselves: “How finished does something need to be before we can begin gathering data on it?” And, if we challenge ourselves, can we actually start to test things much, much earlier?
  107. 107. And finally: Road Mapping Once concepts are identified as a “go” what would be the fastest way to bring them to market. And how could we prioritize? Time Investment ROI (best guess) New resources or skills From here we develop our road map for execution
  108. 108. 6: IN CONCLUSION

  110. 110. has demonstrated our belief that AGILE is key to the future of business in our world, we don’t agree that it applies to everything While we hope that today

  112. 112. We see the brand as a rock that our world flows around. It’s just that the river is flowing a great deal faster these days… In stark contrast
  113. 113. Further down the chain from the brand? THIS is where the true mutability needs to exist… and retail has been, is and always will be the perfect place to showcase our AGILITY Where we lost our way was when retail became stale. Formulaic. Driven by the realities of bulk pricing and mass orders… Retail is all about embracing trends and creating environments which can shape shift on a dime… After all that’s where we started…

Today's shoppers exist in a world that moves at an unparalleled and relentless pace. It's time to accept that the store can no longer stand still and, in fact, is never truly “finished.” Brands perceive they can’t afford to experiment when the truth is, they can’t afford not to. Retailers have to be responsive and experimental--that’s agile retail. They have to think like startups and embrace the Silicon Valley approach to 'fail first, fail fast, learn and iterate.’ The good news is technology is emerging to enable agile retail. What’s missing are the tools and processes to disrupt and revolutionize the store design process. In this session, FITCH will debut new methodology that brings agile concepts to the market, present real life examples of current retailers successfully working this model, and show how stores of the future will embrace this change.
