O Paulo Peres há dias chamou-me a atenção para o livro "Beating the Commodity Trap: How to Maximize Your Competitive Position and Increase Your Pricing Power" de Richard Anthony D'Aveni.
Folheei algumas páginas na internet e fixei esta tabela:
Para já, anotar os dilemas e desafios associados à armadilha da "Deterioração".
Entretanto, encontrei logo aplicação ao ler este artigo "Serendipity and Samples Can Save Barnes & Noble":
"It’s a lovely picture, but bookstores don’t make money by giving you a place to read to your kid. They make money by getting you to buy their merchandise -- a business model that requires spending a lot on rent and inventory. A retail store is an expensive place to store books, especially if people are just going to flip through them and buy elsewhere.
So here’s an idea, for the publishing industry, Barnes & Noble or a tech-savvy retail entrepreneur: Instead of fighting showrooming, embrace it.
Separate the discovery and atmospheric value of bookstores from the book-warehousing function. Make them smaller, with the inventory limited to curated examination copies -- one copy per title. (Publishers should be willing to supply such copies free, just as they do for potential reviewers.) Charge for daily, monthly or annual memberships that entitle customers to hang out, browse the shelves, buy snacks and use the Wi-Fi. Give members an easy way to order books online, whether from a retail site or the publishers directly, without feeling guilty. And give the place a good name. How about Serendipity Books?"
E também "Should Barnes & Noble Turn into a Mini-Mall?"
"It is probably a long shot and B&N probably has a lot more locations than this approach could support. But it is a way of utilizing the book heritage to provide a shopping experience that no one, including Amazon, would be able to match.
And if I were to do it, I would use the approach that Harrod's employs. Most people do not realize that while Harrod's looks like a store, it is actually a mini-mall with each merchandise area leased out to an independent seller — an extension of the model that department stores use with their cosmetics/skin care floor.
I would turn each B&N into a mini-mall in which each individual category is run by a lessee who is expert in that particular category. B&N would act as the systems integrator, putting together a multi-category offering that attracts sufficient customers into the mini-mall. It would also use its book-buying experience and power to stock each lessee with the book inventory required for their category assortment."
