'Cooperate not Compete' - Mr Kishore Biyani, Future Group

Dec '08
"Cooperate not Compete", said, Mr. Kishore Biyani, Chairman, CII National Committee on Retail & Founder & CEO, Future Group at the National Retail Summit organized by The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in Mumbai. The Summit focused on "Collaborative Retail: The New Engine of Growth".

"We operate in a new world order, wherein collaboration with stakeholders is key to profitable business and growth hereon. Areas like marketing spends, real estate, recruitment and training, sourcing, back-end and advocacy offer tremendous scope for cooperation. Ideally, we should look at collaboration on common processes that provide no competitive advantage.

This alone would enable shaving off 5-8% of costs." Mr. Biyani further added that, if retail as a sector is to be given a boost, there has be a shift in the way it is viewed. "Retail needs to be seen as a necessity rather than a luxury; hence it needs to be given an industry status."

Infusing an optimistic tone to the summit, Mr. V Vaidyanathan, Executive Director & Member of the Board, ICICI Bank Ltd., said, "The extent of collaboration is much higher in the last 3 months as compared to the last one year." On the subject of economic slowdown and its implications, he stated, "In this period the question should not be how to face this economic slowdown rather it should be - are we prepared to take on the opportunities that will come across after this economic phase."
