What should we make of several partnership break-downs in the Indian retail sector?
Franchising isn’t rocket science, but advanced space programmes offer at least one parallel which we can learn from – the staging of objectives and planning accordingly.
Tesco and the Tata Group have announced their joint-venture in India. To figure out how it will grow needs us to pre-empt and second-guess the future plans of business executives who are trying to read the intent of politicians who are focussed on elections 4 months into the future.
2013 has been a mixed year for retail in the Indian market with slow growth. What is the formula for international brands to win a place in the Indian market?
“Ingredients for Speed & Innovation” Conference 2014 gathered together senior delegates (CEOs/ CXOs) of the food & beverage Industry, on 7 May 2014 in Delhi.

In this Keynote address at UFI's Asia Open Seminar in Bangalore, Devangshu Dutta shares his views about the key consumer trends in India, and the implications for the events and exhibitions industry.

Rather than centering around festivals, demand is now being created through the year, but so are discounts. And the results aren't pretty.

Much has been written recently, with more than a touch of surprise, about ecommerce companies opening physical retail stores. Whether it is Amazon, Birchbox and Bonobos in the US, Spartoo in France, Astley Clarke in the UK or FirstCry and Flipkart in India, young tech-based ecommerce businesses are adopting the ways of the dinosaur retailers […]
The Patanjali Group has created an Indian FMCG giant in a very short span of time on the back of a three-pronged strategy.
Forward-thinking retailers are reimagining trial rooms, stores, business processes and entire business models. It’s not a physical versus virtual approach but an approach that integrates both sides.
For all the attention paid to the entry and expansion of multinational retailers and nationwide ecommerce growth, retail remains predominantly a local activity. Aggregator models and hyperlocal delivery, in theory, have some significant advantages over existing business models. However, both business models are also typically constrained for margins.
In about 20 years, Café Coffee Day (CCD) has grown from one ‘cyber café’ in Bengaluru to the leading chain of cafés in India by far. What next?
Third Eyesight's CEO, Devangshu Dutta recently participated in a discussion about the phenomenal growth of the Patanjali brand, from yoga lessons to a food and FMCG conglomerate taking well-established multinational and Indian competitors head-on.
