From the “What’s Next: Top Trends” Blog a 2009 trends map
The main body of the map contains the mega-trends. They are in no particular order and then there are eight arms, which represent the other sectors or areas: society, technology, economy, environment, politics, business, family and media,
The circles on each arm are the sector trends and the size of the circle represents the likely impact of the trend over the next twelve months or so. Finally, there is a selection of global risks, which may or may not be totally serious.
It is another great discussion starter.
