- Identify or research possible future trends (e.g. Fjord Trends). These trends for instance could be technological, socio-cultural or entrepreneurial.
- Use the Future Trends worksheet to analyze these possible future trends. On the worksheet you can also determine possible opportunities, threats, the potential impact and the necessary actions.
- Based on the analysis, discuss which topics are becoming particular trends. Try to ask yourself which trend has the potential to become bigger or remain a long-term trend in regards to the business that you are targeting?
- Develop problem-solving action points within the framework of these future trends, which offer added value.
