The Economist Intelligence Unit has released a fascinating 96-page trends report that covers the period till 2020.  The key trends identified are:

  1. Globalization – China and India will take a greater slice of the world economy.
  2. Demographics – The favourable demographic profile of the US will help to spur growth; ageing populations in Europe will inhibit it.
  3. Atomization – Processes, firms, customers and supply chains will fragment as
    companies expand overseas, as work flows to where it is best done and as information digitises.
  4. Personalization – Price and quality will matter as much as ever, but customers in developed and developing markets will place more emphasis on
    personalisation.
  5. Knowledge Management  – Improving the productivity of knowledge workers through technology, training and organisational change will be
    the major boardroom challenge of the next 15 years.
