We live in a fast changing world. In many sectors, a crisis situation arises from ignoring market signals, a lack of innovative power and… sticking to old structures. Hotel owners are complaining about the power of booking platforms such as Booking.com and Tripadvisor. A few years later, the same is happening in the restaurant sector with companies such as Just Eat. And while taxi companies and Uber (drivers) are fighting for the customer, electric scooter concepts such as Lime are silently taking over the short-distance market in large cities. Coolblue enters the solar panel market. Sixt is targeting on the shortlease- and private lease markets. Need more examples?

Innovation is a continuous process. How do you ensure that you recognize developments and trends within and outside your market in time? And translate them into your field of business? Are you responsible for determining strategy and/or implementing innovative products and solutions in your organization? The Masterclass Trend Forecasting will provide you with new insights and valuable tools! During the Trend Forecasting training you will work on strategic future-, innovation- and trend prediction. For this, we use a proven methodology for detecting and tracking trends. A distinction is made between trends with implications in the long, medium and short term. We’ll challenge you to determine the latest trends that affect your field of business.

The training / masterclass Trend Forecasting is offered in two parts (and can be booked as an open training or in-company training):

  1. Introduction into Trend Forecasting – 2-day program including an e-learning module, a Trend Forecasting field trip en final assignment.
