Looking ahead is hard. The world is changing fast. The next 5 years will change even faster than the past 5 years. Knowing how to look ahead, spot trends, opportunities and threats are essential to the success of your business. Make your plan (a little bit more) futureproof with trendwatching techniques and methods to better understand your business environment.

This workshop is a sequal to ‘Trendwatching I – Understanding & doing’, but can also be facilitated on its own. It provides hands-on tools to turn trends into future scenarios. The bridge between trendwatching and business development.

This workshop is designed for the following challenges.
TIP: to help you ‘think’, select the challenges that apply to your case.

  • Understand the ever-changing world
  • Turn information overload into clear trends you can apply to your business
  • Understand changing customer behaviour and needs. Design for future customers, not customers from the past
  • Innovate your business. Iterate existing or explore new business models
  • A more intuitive way to talk to investors, clients and team members
  • Discover relevant trends that impact your business
  • Distil threats and opportunities


The loop
Everything we do is based on lean startup and design thinking techniques. This means we solve challenges in loops: processes that can be repeated until a solution is designed, tested and proven (or not). Build – Measure – Learn. The blueprint behind every session.

The big picture
Having a business model that works doesn't guarantee it will in the future. There are forces outside your business model trying to change (and break) things. We start with a quick refresh.
'Trendwatching for Teams', or 'Trendwatching I - Understanding & doing' are an excelent introduction and preparation to this session.
