Trend watching and innovation
Keeping a breast of what is happening in the world of business and consumer behaviour is one way of advocating for innovative activity. Knowing that things change and and will always change screams the need for innovation. Whether this innovative activity adds value to an organisation through streamlining of internal (backend) efficiencies or through a disruptive offering to the marketplace, it is a must in helping to keep business sustainable and relevant within the marketplace.
Happy trend watching.
