Retail Innovation

Retail Knowledge Bank

Retail is not just stores. It is a complex system of producers, suppliers, and distributers who all deliver innovative consumer solutions. It is, therefore, essential for retailers to understand how to work with innovation, how to manage innovative relationships, and how to put innovative knowledge into practice.

Within the Retail Innovation research theme, our researchers have studied how retail works with innovation and change on a strategic and organisational level. We have also examined how to manage innovation and change on the shop floor. 

You can find the output of this research in the reports, blogs, and videos on this page.
