  • Understand how different competitors might realistically react given certain situations
  • Define a strategic direction that other people can’t copy or will be set up to win regardless of your competitors

Trend Identification

When it comes to trends, we’re either missing them or just looking to close in. You need to look beyond your industry to identify the trends that matter and reduce the noise by really understanding the ones that matter to you. Then, come up with ways to ride the wave of those trends.

  • Challenge your assumptions and learn something new with experts
  • Understand leading indicators from inside and outside of the industry
  • Prioritize trends that have the most potential to impact your business
  • Align leaders on the trends that matter
  • Generate a plan for how to respond to trends and leverage them
