Identifying Trends

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Properly identifying trends is first priority for effective use of strategic foresight because accurate trend research helps unearth vulnerabilities and new opportunities. Believe it or not this is the place where most foresight activities run off the rails.

In small groups working to assess case studies, you’ll learn more about:

  • How to identify and sidestep your own blind spots 
  • How to determine if a “hot new trend” is worth a response 

Together the group will develop meaningful, pool specific criteria for using trends to identify opportunities or threats to your organization.
