Breadth of Coverage
Recognizing that future opportunities and threats will most likely come from outside one’s immediate industry/category, we look broadly at changes in consumer life and technology.
Our research is written to be scannable and easily digestible by busy professionals. We synthesize dozens of sources but go far beyond the surface analysis offered by many trend-spotting and cool-hunting services.
Longer Time Horizon
We look out 5, 10, and occasionally even 25 years, but always “walk back to today” to provide actionable implications in every analysis so you can make more effective decisions today.
