Blog: Leonie Barriejust-style management briefings: all change but they're still the same

Leonie Barrie | 2 August 2010

Regular readers of just-style may have noticed that one of the major changes to the new site is a new format for management briefings. Instead of publishing downloadable mini-reports, we're now delivering the briefings as a series of articles (or chapters) which are grouped together in one place.

The advantage of this tweak is that the information now comes to you in more digestible bite sizes, and is also easier for our readers to locate. For instance, the management briefing articles will not only appear in searches performed on the site, but each article features in our daily newsletters on the day it is published, making it far more accessible too.

Despite this change to the way we deliver the reports, they still take an in-depth look into issues affecting our industry and contain the familiar mix of analysis and data.

The July management briefing, for instance, tackles the subject 'Size matters,' looking at the size and fit challenges facing firms as they expand intentionally, the potential for growth in the US plus-size market, and how the latest data on body size has a commercial role to play.

Other management briefings in the pipeline over the coming months will look at the importance of 'Distance to market,' 'Product safety regulations,' 'Tomorrow's textile industry' and 'Apparel industry issues to watch in 2011.'
