Retailers Can Learn Valuable Lessons from the World’s Tallest Skyscrapers
When visiting New York or another major city for the first time, the number and size of all the skyscrapers are without question one of the most notable elements. The term skyscraper literally means to erase or block out the sky. These are massive buildings by any account. Undoubtedly, skyscrapers are an impressive feat of modern engineering. However, they wouldn’t be possible without a strong foundation.
Like skyscrapers, retail businesses must also be built on a strong foundation in order to stand firm against the elements. We aren’t talking about physical buildings in this sense, but rather the right solutions which empower retailers to make profitable decisions. In other words, we are talking about the foundation of a profitable supply chain: a profitable demand planning solution.
