What are trends?

 

We define trends as observable developments in the business and socio-economic environment.  They are not the future, but by looking at where a trend is going we can gain insight into the future. ​

 

Trend analysis isn't hard: the most significant challenges are gathering observations and confronting biases and assumptions.

 

To be insightful market trends and economic trends must transcend our understanding of reality and challenge our thinking.  

 

To achieve this, we start with broad observations, from as wide a field as possible; reaching deep into your company to tap a wide variety of ideas.  ​

Then these observations need to be tested and patterned into trends.  

 

We have mapped our process and created a guide to developing your trend analysis.
