4-16-2021 The 4 Megatrends for 2020-2030

Megatrends are the big trends that affect all people, and all businesses.  Originally identified in 1982 by John Naisbitt (who died 13 April) and detailed in his book of the same name, today we can still use Megatrends to make decisions that will improve our success.  By using Megatrends to drive our planning, and decision making, we position our careers, and our businesses for greatest success.


We can look at current events and see how the 4 Megatrends in “Thrive to the Future” (available on this website) are driving immediate behavior.  (1) Mobile – demonstrated by the acceleration in tablet sales (2) Asynchronous behavior – demonstrated by continuation of on-line k-12 education, and the failure of movie theatre companies as well as traditional retailers (3) Gig Economy growth – demonstrated in the defeat of the union effort at Amazon (4) Artificial Intelligence – demonstrated by Microsoft’s $16B purchase of Nuance to gain more AI solutions in health care and other industries.


This podcasts describes the 4 Megatrends for 2020-2030, how they are impacting us TODAY, and how we can apply them for greater success over the next decade.
