The ever-changing store: An agile approach to redesigning retail formats. The role of the store has changed.
With customers increasingly shifting their spending online, it’s not enough for a brick-and-mortar store to be just a transactional venue. Instead, it now must serve as a brand-building environment in which customers can have special, in-person experiences that can’t be replicated in digital channels. To keep their stores relevant, retailers need to make the most of physical stores’ built-in sensory advantages over e-commerce—they need to tout the experience of touching, smelling, and trying on products, and they must ensure that the in-store experience is enjoyable and convenient.
Otherwise, customers simply won’t bother making the trip. In most cases, creating a distinctively compelling customer experience will require retailers to redesign their store formats. Leading from the front line: How airlines can boost ancillary revenues. Ancillary revenues are rising, and airlines increasingly depend on them.
The next step forward: Efforts to help frontline employees collect these fees and charges more effectively. Ancillary revenues—the money airlines make from sales and fees for products and services such as food, checked bags, and extra legroom—have become a topic of great interest for airline executives over the past decade. Now estimated at $50 billion to $55 billion a year, they exceed the industry’s $31 billion ten-year average annual operating profit.
Without them, the industry would not be profitable. Airlines setting out to increase these revenues usually focus on the commercial functions—marketing, sales, pricing, and distribution—and digitize as much of the process as possible.

The importance of customer experience in developing pharma products. In increasingly crowded drug markets, a strong clinical profile is no longer enough to ensure a distinctive launch.
To be successful, pharma companies need to launch not only products but also experiences. Traditionally, pharma launches have been all about the new drug or medical device in question: its clinical efficacy, its safety, its superiority to alternatives, and its ease of use. In the buildup to launch, the product is front and center and the goal is to address patients’ medical needs and prescribers’ professional needs.
Any issues with customer satisfaction and loyalty are identified and tackled after the event. But the recent succession of below-par launches casts doubt on whether this remains an effective strategy in today’s world. Focusing too narrowly on clinical value often leads companies to neglect a powerful driver of launch success: the customer experience. Takaharu Tezuka: The best kindergarten you’ve ever seen. What shoppers really want from personalized marketing. What customers want and what businesses think they want are often two different things.
Here’s what customers are looking for. Anyone who has gotten an unsolicited and irrelevant offer related to something they’ve done online knows that creepy feeling that someone is watching me.
