WHAT: Vision Talk Session: Business Optimization
There has been a significant shift in power from brands to consumers over the last two decades as consumers have far more choices today as a result of eCommerce, globalization, social media, and many other converging factors. Yet, brands still operate with the same supply-driven mindset they’ve enjoyed since the advent of the department store, determining demand with supply. This has led brands to rely upon increasingly inefficient inventory volumes to drive profits, resulting in overproduction and eroding margins.
There is a better way. It starts with creating products that people love – and less of what they don’t.
In this session, MakerSights Co-founder and President Matt Field will explain how brands can shift to a demand-driven approach that is powered by consumer obsession. Matt will also share how reducing the waste generated by overproduction – wasted resources, time, and money – is particularly relevant in today’s state of economic uncertainty.
