For the past several years, I’ve shared my thoughts on the year ahead and the trends we see in the pipeline. We can all agree that 2016 brought the advent of change, and we expect to see more change in 2017. Businesses can, and should, be planning to face challenges head on, and we’re partnering with our clients to address these emerging issues and react to market shifts and dynamics.
Below are five key trends we’ve identified for 2017:
- Planning for obsolescence
- Weighing the cost of innovation
- Becoming borderless through digital
- Humanizing virtual interactions
- Moving from big data to big algorithms
I encourage you to take a look at our 2017 Outlook for more detail on each of the trends. During the coming weeks, you’ll be hearing from a number of our experts, from data and analytics to life sciences to retail, and more, on what they see for the coming year so make sure to check back often.
