What You Will Learn

UNICHANNEL FULFILLMENT: The Three Megatrends Impacting the Past, Present and Future of Commerce. The Three Megatrends are:

  1. The evolution of organizational development from Continuous Improvement to Transformation to Reinvention.
  2. The increase in complexity of commerce from optimal single channel design to Uni-Channel, Uni-Logistics, Uni-Marketing and Uni-Technology Optionality design.
  3. The speed of change and the level of innovation, entrepreneurship and disruption to keep pace.

The future for commerce is awesome, but it is a whole new ball game. There has never been this level of opportunity for entrepreneurism, innovation and disruption, as there is today. The keys to grabbing this unichannel fulfillment opportunity dealing with Reinvention, the Disruption Cycle and Optionality, while building huge success will be disclosed in this MODEX presentation.
