KEYtrends 

As we evolved from ancient  to medieval  to renaissance to agricultural to industrial age,  people embraced  business models at a predictable steady pace. As the movement to post modernism happened with the advent of information age and with our present high social connectedness era, the speed with which business models are changing in any field be it medicine, healthcare, technology, computers, nano, bio engineering, banking, manufacturing, space research, education, cognitive sciences and so forth is  happening with blue streak intensity.

Corporate vision used to be inexorably cast earlier but with today’s business models  and ‘emerging trend militancy’, organizations have revisited the sustainability of their vision midway, made alterations, gone for acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures, partnership, sell off and other ‘stay afloat’ strategies. 

EXPLOSIVE IDEAS ARE ALL AROUND US, WHAT WE PICK DEPENDS UPON INDIVIDUAL & COLLECTIVE DISPOSITION 

Never has  ‘key trends’ monitoring assumed such significance as much as the present time as it is from this repertoire that CEO’s formulate their vision and endurance strategy for the firm. The only certainty in the emerging key trends is that there is absolutely no permanence of any trend, it just keeps galloping albeit for the good of the consumer. It can be  unquestionably asserted that power lies with the consumer and with the pervasive social networks and possibility of even the mundane interaction going viral, organizations have to be wary of  the levels of service and customer satisfaction that they render in the playing arena.
