Consumer and Retail Markets

Consumer and retail companies face an ever-increasing series of challenges.  As well as the age-old issues of marketing, product complexity and supply chain efficacy, most global consumer and retail companies are dealing with disruptive technologies, higher and more volatile commodity prices and softening consumer sentiment.  The needs of globalisation are also requiring investment in multiple emerging markets. All these factors are often leading to falling real returns.

Consumer and retail companies must maintain their focus on innovation and rigorous alignment of the value chain with corporate strategy, which are needed to achieve the necessary growth and margin.

  • Litmus has helped many of the world's leading consumer and retail companies to respond to some key challenges:
  • How can we drive additional turnover and increase marginal returns?
  • How can we substantiate corporate strategy, implement it well and make it measurable?
  • How can we best develop new markets and ensure that the development of our products and services always meets the needs of the customer? 
  • Which processes, structures and management tools will help us stand out clearly from the competition?
  • Which methods do we need to use to ensure our operations are optimally managed?
