Marshall Fisher on ‘The New Science of Retailing

漂浮少女 in Taipei (via OFU)

In today’s economy, retailers are hard-pressed to increase revenues. Among the biggest challenges retailers face is matching supply with demand. When a customer walks into your store, do you have the item they are looking for? Or do they walk out because you are out of the product, you don’t carry it or they couldn’t locate it on the shelf? Stock excess is just as problematic and leads retailers to heavily discounted pricing.

In his book, The New Science of Retailing: How Analytics Are Transforming the Supply Chain and Improving Performance, co-authored with Harvard Business School professor Ananth Raman,Wharton operations and information management professor Marshall Fisher argues that retailers have the data they need to manage supply chains more efficiently and increase sales and profits.

On the Pitfalls of Superstitious Learning – Rita McGrath – Harvard Business Review

Found at On the Pitfalls of Superstitious Learning – Rita McGrath – Harvard Business Review.

In business research, we often build up theories about what works and what doesn’t work based on evidence that’s correlated, but not causal. We pick an outcome — successful performance, say — and incorrectly identifying what caused that outcome. This is a major flaw in our work, as my colleague Phil Rosenzweig has pointed out in his work on the “halo effect.”

So, are you psyched for the new Harry Potter movie? Like you, your kids, and approximately 99% of humanity, I confess: I too am captivated by the thought of a magical world where diligently memorized incantations can grant thunderous powers beyond the reach of mortals. “Accio, job growth!”
