In preparing this edition, the authors focused on five important developments: (1) the use of big data and analytical methods for decision making, (2) the application of social media and smart phones for communicating with customers and enhancing their shopping experience, (3) the issues involved in utilizing a mobile channel and providing a seamless multichannel experience for customers, (4) the engagement in corporate social responsibility activities - the consideration of society when making business decisions, and (5) the impact of globalization on the retail industry.
