Want to know the future? Meet technology foresight

The 21st century requires us to be well informed about current events, to adapt quickly to changes and to be flexible in the labor market. How can we prepare well for the coming changes and developments in technology?

The answer to this need is the Trend Map created annually by the Polish organization Strategic Foresight and Technology Foresight allow us to examine reality through qualitative and quantitative research. The research conducted makes it possible to make hypotheses about the trends of the future. 

The Trend Map is a tool that many companies use for strategic planning, even of the next 5-10 years. This approach can also be applied in Polish companies to respond well to current and future market expectations.

The first of a series of talks on current political, economic and international events is a conversation with Natalia Hatalska, about the Trend Map. We talk about how trends are being studied, as well as how people’s perspective on nature, demographic change and ubiquitous digitization will change. Listen to the conversation on this topic on our podcast channel. The conversation, held in Polish, is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcast and other channels.

The Trend Map is available at:
