Trends overview

Today, we stand at a technological, political and environmental inflection point. Two decades of rapid technology growth and innovation has generated enormous physical and digital clutter. The steep demand on the planet’s resources mirrors the demand on our time and attention, which leads to our meta theme this year: the search for value and relevance.

In 2019, success will lie in providing value relevant not only to individuals, but also to the world. Value creation will not come from simply growing bigger, but by being better. In busy lives and on a crowded planet, only the relevant will remain.
