FUTURE CUSTOMER 2020

Being a successful and thriving business today, is not just about doing things well. Good is no longer good enough. It’s about having a deeper understanding of your customer than ever before. Even more importantly, in today’s fast paced world, planning for the day after tomorrow is a key skill that is critical to survival.  We are now living in an era of hyper distraction, with customers being bombarded with content across platforms and devices. Advertising just doesn’t connect with Gen Y, let alone even touch the surface with Generation Z.  Crafted storytelling, with a perfect blend of technology, frictionless experiences and people will be the hallmark of tomorrows business.

GROWTH & TRANSFORMATION

We have quickly moved into an era now of using technology to lead longer and better lives. The healthcare sector is seeing rapid growth through the adoption of wearable devices. We are literally swimming in data, and have more insights into our lives than ever before in history.  The democratising of resources, assets and energy ahead mean that the way we consume everything is changing rapidly. Deep, real-time learning to create adaptive experiences and the building of solutions for specific problems, not general ones will set businesses ahead.  Being able to ‘pull levers’ and embrace ‘liquid data’ is now how we will see the power balance between large businesses and small ones changed forever.

HUMAN IMPACT & MEGA TRENDS

Everything about our world is influenced by megatrends; slow moving large, social, economic, political, environmental or technological changes that impact us everywhere. Every business is now a technology business, it’s no longer something special. It’s our new normal. Megatrends influence a wide range of activities, processes and perceptions, both in government and in society, and they last for decades. These forces then drive trends around the world. The most successful, innovative and forward thinking businesses are continually plugged into these movements, and use them to support their medium to long term strategies.‍‍‍
