General Information about Future Trends for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.
Future trends such as new technologies or novel forms of social behavior are widely discussed today. However, most executives are unable to clearly identify future trends and explain how they will impact their company. This is most probably caused by outdated educational systems that focus on how to manage organizations by emphasizing past performance and favoring tactics over strategy. So, what are future trends and how can your company or organization benefit from adopting them?
A good way to recognize a trend is by finding a dataset that shows change over a period of time. For example, phenomena such as exponential growth, slow decline, or even a flat line could count as a trend. Future trends usually fall into one of five categories, referred to by their advocates as STEEP – an acronym standing for Society, Technology, Economics, Ecology, and Politics. These are the broad categories into which innovation and future trends usually fall. Examples may include an aging workforce, a more culturally diverse population, the growth of virtual marketplaces, the rise of the data economy, the automation of business activities, plummeting costs of solar electricity, the video games industry outpacing Hollywood, and many others. Future trends may be understood as involving risks, opportunities, or both, according to the perspective from which one looks at them.
