business news in context, analysis with attitude

Content Guy's Note:  Gary Hawkins is the co-founder of CART - The Center for Advancing Retail & Technology, and the author of a new book, "Bionic Retail:  How To Thrive In An Exponential World."  In our conversation, we talk about why it is critical for retailers to adjust to an "innovation flywheel" that affects every business;  how "first principles thinking" can create the right environment for innovation;  and what retailers need to do to draw up a blueprint for the future.  And, we focus on why it no longer is good enough to run faster and faster, only find that you're pretty much in the same place.
