MINITRENDS: Initiating a Minitrend Exploitation Program
There is much discussion in the business world today of Megatrends, i.e, very large-sale trends define the nature of our society. However, recognizing these Megatrends provides little guidance to businesses about specific strategies. MiniTrends — trends that promise to be of significant importance within two to five years, but are not generally recognized or appreciated by the public or most businesses — on the other hand, are of a scope and importance to provide profitable business opportunities.
Although most businesses try to stay alert to trends that might impact their markets, financial status, and operations, few have specific programs to identify, assess, and exploit such trends. Given the complexity, uncertainty, and rapid change in the New World business environment, including a formal Minitrend Exploitation Program in the strategic planning process provides companies with important competitive advantages.
In this presentation, we demonstrate the basic principles involved in initiating and conducting a Minitrend Exploitation Program.
This presentation can be expanded to a half-day to two-day MiniTrends Workshop customized to your organization’s needs. Workshops include an explanation of the MiniTrends Concept and the development of a foundation for a strong MiniTrends Exploitation Program. Workshops include hands-on discussion and exercises.
