on internet searches or other secondary research (i.e., reading
magazine, books, other sources, etc…) please identify a total of six
(6) trends that are relevant to the group of people / context, type of
company or industry / field that you have decided to focus on. This is
another source of critical information that can help you build insights
and uncover opportunities relevant to the domain you are focused on.
- One Political Trend
- One Economic Tend
- Two Socio-Cultural Trends
- Two Technology Trends
but don’t be limited by the space provided (once you add a couple of
sentences about each trend, list / discuss underlying or related trends,
and talk about identified opportunities for each of the 6 trends this
will be a couple of pages). This (along with all readings and quizzes)
is DUE BEFORE your next class session.
- A trend is a change in something — something should be increasing,
decreasing, becoming more important or relevant or having a more
significant impact, etc… Make it clear what is changing and in what
- We want you to focus on your domain — an area close to your
passions. However, trends are typically analyzed at an industry level so
if you can figure out the industry that is typically associated with
the group of people and context you are looking at this can help (as you
search online to learn more about what is happening relevant to your
area pay attention to the terms used to describe your domain — this can
help you improve your search criteria and find better information).
- Start by searching on Google for “trends affecting XXXX people”,
“trends in XXXX industry”, or “the future of XXXX” or “new technology in
XXXX industry” or simply on “recent economic trends” or “recent
political trends”. You may even find example PEST analyses out there
online that can be a great starting point.
There are literally dozens of right answers to this we just want to
see that you have done research and have a decent explanation about how
the trend affects the industry you are working on, how these trends are
connected to other underlying or related trends, and how this trend
creates new needs, changes needs, allows you to solve problems in
different ways, or otherwise creates opportunities in your domain.
