Experts’ insight

"When retailers grow to corporates, they become multi-format, multi-channel, multinational and complex to manage. However, successful retail requires simplicity, energy and pragmatism. Retailers have to simultaneously integrate more and more sophisticated skills, including judging advantages and challenges of new technologies with new digital skills. Skills, organisation and change management are some of the major concerns for clients, who are often both manufacturers and retailers. Our hard-earned experience of retail is a key asset as we contribute to the creation of the future top performers and essential changes. All Dia-Mart associates have earned a professional reputation in retail before joining us!"
