About this title


Consumers today are more powerful and changeable than ever. Their actions have a massive impact on business and society alike. For companies to survive, they need to understand how to anticipate and capitalize on consumer change. If they wait to react to it they are likely to miss the market. Correctly predicting consumer attitudes, tastes and behaviours by identifying and analysing the underlying trends will help you to future-proof your business strategy in today's volatile world.

The Next Big Thing strips away the ambiguity and mystery that surrounds trends, providing a no-nonsense guide to incorporating them into your business strategy. It is the first book to reveal how consumer trends work, how to spot them, and then how to use that knowledge to gain financial and competitive advantage. Based on the concept of trend marketing, it will show you how to anticipate, prepare for and benefit from trends. Full of examples and fascinating detail, it offers the inside track on all aspects of trends analysis, including:
