The future isn’t something that just happens passively to us. Rather, we are creating it in the present tense. And so, with the right framework in hand, is possible to anticipate new technologies and their impact in order to map what’s yet to come.
At the end of each year, the Future Today Institute (formerly Webbmedia Group Digital Strategy) applies our forecasting model to surface the most important emerging trends in technology for the year ahead. We've just published our annual Trend Report, and it features 81 notable trends and more than 100 companies and people to watch in 2016.
Mapping the future for your organization begins with identifying early signposts as you look out on the horizon. In order to chart the best way forward, you must understand emerging trends: what they are, what they aren’t, and how they operate. Our 2016 Trend Report helps ensure that your organization is better positioned to understand changes and proactively plan for what’s past the horizon. You can use it to identify near-future business disruption and competitive threats while simultaneously finding new collaborators and partners. Most importantly, it should spark new ideas and opportunities to help your organization innovate and grow.
