Abstract:

Like many futurists, I use trends as a fundamental building block in my corporate foresight activities. Everybody, more or less, understands trends, even the time-pressed, attention-span-deprived corporate audience. But I am often asked: where do your trends come from, where are your data, or how did you arrive at this vision of the future?; as if there is some kind of trends superstore at which we go shopping. You have probably heard or even asked questions like these many times yourself. I have never found them easy to answer, and I have always felt guilty about that. As professional futurists, shouldn't we be able to answer these kinds of questions in our sleep?
