40 megatrend fact sheets, an ideal input for planning or innovation sessions

are you...
  • looking for insights to generate new innovation ideas?
  • looking for fresh ideas to base your strategic planning on?
Get the most out of your planning or innovation sessions by using megatrend fact sheets. 

These fact sheets can be used as a briefing document prior to your innovation or planning meeting, or at the meeting itself as eye-openers. I've even seen planning sessions where these fact sheets were hung on the walls all around the room for people to discuss!

But the crucial thing for this to be successful is to keep the fact sheets light and digestible... after all they're meant to stimulate ideas, not to be academic papers. As an example, here is what I usually include in my fact sheets:

These megatrend fact-sheets should be designed to:
ü prepare your team for long-term planning session;
ü help you understand the long-term challenges of your business;
ü discover new opportunities for your business;
ü generate innovative ideas to ensure your long-term success!

Creating these fact sheets is not rocket science, but it can be quite time-consuming to check the most relevant sources and graphics, and summarize the most thought-provoking questions to ask your team.

In case you like the idea but you don't have time to spend on this, you might consider using the ones the Institute for Future Insights has designed. They all follow the fact sheet design above, and cover 40 specific megatrends:
