What will consumer demand be across all your retail channels? Do you have a true unified view of demand, or are you still operating with a disparate, functional area-driven, multi-channel approach to understanding demand patterns? How will physical stores drive sales differently and interact with your online environment? How do you execute most profitably? You’ve heard the term “peanut butter” approach, and this is not the time for a one size fits all. Dig into the data, use your people and your intelligence systems to identify anomalies. Fine-tune, cleanse, and learn to trust the data. Likely unplanned strategies will have to be deployed to move through non-sellable inventory, making room for new, seasonally-correct incoming inventory. Having a plan will allow the execution of each order to be deployed through allocation and replenishment to support the strategy. Additionally, the steps you take for recovery will be instrumental in supporting the retail planning process for the years to come.
