Planting the Seeds of Innovation

04/21/2014
Retailers need to apply an innovation filter to their strategic planning. If not, they will just spend hard-earned capital on catching up instead of leaping ahead. Innovation and forward thinking should be ingrained at every level of the enterprise to ensure that each member of the team has the possibility to be a catalyst for change.
 
At the Retail Executive Summit, Darrell Sandefur, Director, Digital Innovation and R&D, Luxottica Retail will discuss how to plant the seeds of innovation and instill a culture of change at the " The Art of What's Possible: Real-World Innovation" session. Innovation is not an easy task and retailers need to learn how to balance creativity and the day-to-day stress of managing the enterprise.
 
For multiple years, Sandefur has been selecting and deploying omnichannel solutions for customers and associates for major grocery and supermarket brands and for the last few years at LensCrafters and Sunglass Hut. Darrell is an active member of the Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS) Board of Directors and is a frequent speaker at industry events.
 
The 13th annual Retail Executive Summit will be held June 18-20, 2014 at the Grand Del Mar in Grand Del Mar, California. The conference features keynotes from retail leaders, peer-to-peer exchanges, relationship building, and the 4th annual CIO of the Year Awards.
