We just finished a two day Trend Watching Training with an ambitious and curious team. The program included: an introduction to a world of trends; peeling the “onion” from outside in – going from mega trends, to consumer trends, to industry trends; a real life Trend Safari; and finally transforming all of these new insights into innovation in a guided workshop.
After the training, the team had:
a) a shared understanding of what a trend is.
b) a shared understanding of some challenges and opportunities in relation to working with trends.
c) a shared understanding of different types of trends.
d) experienced a real life Trend Safari to spot examples of different trends.
e) learned a method for how to transform an observable trend into innovation.
The feed back from the participants was overwhelmingly positive:
“The best. Very concrete and relevant.”
“Really good. Time well spent.”
“Inspiring. Well structured. Eye opening.”
“So important. And fun!”
“Very good days of learning. Inspiring and eye-opening”.
We humbly say thank you very much, are so happy to have facilitated and supported the learning and development of the team in such a positive way.
Please contact us for more information about how we could help you and your team discover a world of trends, and what that could mean to your company.
