We are in the midst of yet another shift in business models because of digital. This time the force for change is not mobility; it’s data and the Internet of Things. The more devices that connect to each other, the more digital creates a personal ecosystem, called Digital Context. Digital Context is as distinct a shift in business strategy from omni-channel as omni-channel was from the first multi-channel business models. Companies need strategies grounded in consumer behavior to guide the development of business models, brand experiences, and customer journey work. Based on two years of in-depth research on consumers, Digital Context 2.0, provides seven lessons on how to prepare your business for the next wave of technologies—and make your customers happier. Lesson 1: A Watch is not a Watch A watch is not a watch. An IoT-enabled razor is not a razor. An IoT-enabled hearing aid is not a hearing aid. They can each do the basic functionality that the name implies but they do much more and will be hired by consumers to do more than what the name of the item suggests. The consumer hires the tool to do much more than what you originally intended the product to do. The more tools that connect to each other the more each tool becomes a part of an ecosystem that supports other activities. That ecosystem will change your business model. Lesson 2: Over Time All Channels Become Queues Critical to every business model are the marketing, transactional, and customer service channels that ensure that you can share your offerings with your customers. We have progressed from a world of single channels, to multi-channels, to omni-channels, and now to Digital Context. Along the way the channel has become smart and when channels become smart they queue things. Lesson 3: Consumers Get that Context Requires Data Despite the constant hacks and security breaches, most consumers share their data with companies freely if they understand and agree to the purpose for sharing the data. The Internet of Things and Digital Context depend upon the free flow of data between things. Lesson three explains why consumers share data, who the Context Comfortables are, and why they are important to every company’s business strategy. Lesson 4: Design Your Value Proposition to Target a Consumer Mode Increasingly, if companies are to be relevant and differentiated to their customers, they will need to understand modes. Modes are ways of thinking and behaving that consumers ‘get into’ that helps them get things done. By targeting a mode for your value proposition, you are effectively aligning your goods, services, or experiences with the way that consumers go about doing what they want to do. Lesson 5: Data + Content Creates the Package Companies that are focused on creating content for distribution should turn their attention to focusing on ways to create the Package. Smart Media companies need to find ways to increase the amount of data that travels with the content they produce. In Digital Context, consumers will want their content to be informed by different data types. Companies are used to very basic data being embedded in or attached to content. However, context-aware content requires that companies find ways to share data about much more. Lesson 6: Don’t Focus on Loyalty; Focus on Positive Engagement The promise of Digital Context cannot just be to speed things up. Context must improve the wellbeing of people. Research in positive psychology can help companies think about delivering happiness to consumers. Digital Context should tap into that body of research. This lesson explores why a loyalty mindset is wrong for Digital Context and why a positive engagement mindset is what companies need to go after. Lesson 7: Doing Digital Strategy: A Case Study Using a fictional example based on P&G's Swiffer product, David W. Norton, Ph.D. shows how to bring the other six lessons together into strategic activities that guide business decision-making.

The modern retail system has worked to dazzling effect. From the 19th century, store owners emerged from small beginnings to set in train an industry that has seen some operators become nationally, even globally, dominant. Along the way, they turned retailing into an art, and then a science. Now retailers in emerging markets appear to be repeating the story all over again, except on a scale and at a speed beyond anything we have seen before. Given all of this, it can be hard for those who work in retailing to accept that the industry as we know it is living on borrowed time, on the brink of transformation. There is now an urgency with which conventional store-based retailers must now act and the extent of the challenges this change represents in strategic, organizational, and above all, technological terms. Reshaping Retail sets out the driving causes, current trends and consequences of a transformation in retail triggered by technology. The changes go far beyond making items available for sale on the internet. Starting by briefly setting the historical and business system contexts for retail and describe the role that technology has played in the creation of modern retail it then explains the underlying technological drivers behind the current revolution – radical changes in the capacity of both hardware and software, mobile telecommunications changes and the advances of the Internet. Ultimately, success will hinge on more than competence; it will come down to a way of thinking. Customer-centricity will need to be valued not just by the store owner, as in the past, but also by all employees in the organization. It will need to become embedded in their daily tasks. The same applies to technology, which must be at the center of the organization and recognized as such by everyone. With a combination of extensive desk and field research, interviews with leading retailers and technologists, together with the real world experience of practitioners in this area, Reshaping Retail will inspire and help store retailers to make the necessary transformation now to win in the new consumer driven world.
