Features and benefits
- Identify the key mega-trends, trends, and sub-trends that are shaping the future consumer and innovation landscape.
- Appreciate the importance that trends play in forming successful new product development and marketing strategies.
- Understand the effect of counter-trends and trend crossover, and how they represent significant opportunities or threats.
- Witness on-trend innovation and marketing in the form of best-practice product examples from across the entire FMCG spectrum.
Unless linked to a concrete consumer benefit, innovation can lead to costly failure. A new product failure rate in consumer packaged goods of around 80% captures the inherent challenge facing the industry.
The bigger-picture "mega-trend compass" provided by TrendSights helps reduce the problem of understanding consumer behavior to its essential components with an appropriate framework to structure analysis and determine areas of opportunity and threat.
