In this collection of articles, Elix-IRRâ€™s retail professionalsÂ examine the fundamental changes brought about by theÂ digital consumer and the related shifts in the industry.Â The articles discuss many of the challenges and opportunitiesÂ on which our clients seek our advice.
These are not only the fashionable issues of customerÂ insight and multichannel shopping, but also the challengesÂ which arise through organisational change, the drive forÂ supply chain efficiency and the transformation of IT fromÂ a back office cost centre to the enabling mechanism forÂ customer interaction and loyalty.
If you work in business, the chances are you have fallen under the poisonous spell of business bullshit and jargon. Very few of us seem able to avoid â€śreaching outâ€ť, or â€śtouching baseâ€ť, or â€śshifting paradigmsâ€ť, or â€śthinking outside the boxâ€ť. No longer solely the province of management consultants, investors and MBA types, business gobbledygook has mesmerized the rank and file around the globe.
Help is at hand with this Dictionary of Business Bullshit, aptly described as â€śthe worldâ€™s most comprehensive collectionâ€ť of the top 2,000 business terms and jargon that have infected us all. Stay sane (and keep your colleagues and customers from suffocating you) from the business bullshit madness by having this dictionary by your side. Based on his wide and extensive experience with business bullshit, Kevin Duncan deciphers the terms and language of modern-day business speak.Author:Â Kevin Ducan
