Challenges and possibilities in a changing environment
The Swedish retail industry is facing a considerable transformation. Digitalisation has stimulated the pace of change and is continuing to transform most things in the world around us. Increased global competition, ever-expanding e-commerce, changes in patterns of consumer behavior, a growing sharing economy and an ageing population continue to reshape the retail industry. These trends are placing new demands on property owners who need to re-adjust by revitalizing their business strategies and identifying new business opportunities. Property owners will also need to integrate new methods of leadership and organization into their ways of working to effectively meet the increasingly rapid pace of change.
