How trend forecasting can help you make a case for change
Does this sound familiar? Your company isn’t competing effectively, your competitors always seem to get there before you. Perhaps you work in insights, and you have repeatedly been informing the business about forthcoming change and you’ve seen no uptake. Or perhaps you’re a designer and your directional designs aren’t making it past sign off.
It’s our philosophy that trends can be used to differentiate
We’re moving out of a ‘one size fits all’ approach for brands and retail and towards a time when having a well differentiated offer and standing for something really matters. Being original has never mattered more, but how do trends help you walk that fine line between inspiration and commercial viability?
Over the years, we’ve got to see inside hundreds of companies and understand their relationship with trends. Some companies are new to trend forecasting and have never done it before, and others have really strong trend foresight practices embedded and a track record of using trends to drive commercial success.
It’s very common that companies have departments and individuals who care about trends but that trends aren’t widely used or understood throughout the business. There’s always a mixture of trend enthusiasts and trend skeptics. So how do you get everyone on board to drive change?
Introducing our new masterclass series: Making a case for change
