These days, leading retailers are focused on much more than just winning the next trip—they’re creating ecosystems designed to make them the path of least resistance for consumers.

- How does ecosystem building impact overall marketing strategy, from advertising to weekly promotions?
- How have Kroger and Walmart distinguished their ecosystems from Amazon’s model?
- What role does price discounting play in ecosystem-building?
