We all know the implications of digital’s influence on retail are enormous. But desktop computers, laptops and smartphones aren’t the only devices influencing the shopping experience. In-store technologies and wearable devices are stirring things up, as well. And how will exponential technologies like robotics, 3D printing, and virtual reality have an impact?
The keynote address “The Exponential Organization: How to Win in a Disruptive Tech Enabled Age” at Shop.org’s 2015 Digital Summit in Philadelphia, Oct. 7 to 15, will dive into just that topic. Salim Ismail, noted luminary, author and founding executive director of Singularity University, will discuss how to adapt and meet these new challenges in retail by becoming an exponential organization (ExO) – a new breed of company that leverages innovative organizational techniques and exponential technologies to accelerate growth, scalability, and competitive position. Kasey Lobaugh, Deloitte Digital’s chief retail innovation officer and principal at Deloitte Consulting LLP, will share new research data and insights that illustrate these challenges in the digital retail industry.
You can register online for Shop.org’s Digital Summit before Oct. 2.
