OCm²® Retail Consulting

The Omni-Channel Maturity Model OCm²® is a strategic retail consulting methodology to drive business transformation by providing templates for assessing and guiding retailers based on established maturity models.

Retailers, brands and wholesalers have embarked on the journey of business transformation for a number of years with varying degrees of success based on the maturity of the market. However, the focus of business transformation has often focused on the use of digital and in many cases there is a lack of execution and alignment across the organisation.

OCm²® addresses the above challenges by providing a methodology based on practical experience spanning more than 25 years across Europe, North America and Asia. The methodology is based on a collaborative approach, based on the underlying principle of knowledge transformation; which is part of our culture of creating a win-win partnership with our clients.

Challenges

Many of the activities relating to business transformation are engagements with consulting organisations to provide an assessment followed by high level recommendations. Often these recommendations are not practical enough and hard to implement while maintaining business as usual. Also, it is very challenging to decide upon the starting point and to have a clear roadmap visible for all and supported across the organisation.

Change is hard. It challenges people outside their comfort zone and if there is no buy-in and people are not clear on what is in it for them, then it is often met with inertia. This is all happening at a time when retail is suffering globally, as businesses are desperately trying to evolve, whilast still struggling to control spiralling costs.

The Omni-Channel Maturity Model is a strategic consulting and change program, providing templates for assessing organisations based on maturity models.
