Chief Researchers on Megatrends

Megatrend analysis is an essential part of the futurist's toolbox.

Megatrends are great global forces that impact businesses, economies, societies, culture and our personal lives. They are cross-generational, with a time horizon of at least 10-15 years, broad in scope, and maintain significant potential to affect the current status quo.

Megatrend analysis helps us make sense of the complexity of our surrounding world and take action. It is an integrated and important part of CIFS' Copenhagen Method.
