FUTURE RADAR: Trends, Technologies and Markets

Seneca already knew 2000 years ago:

“There will be a time when we wonder how it was possible that we didn’t know the obvious.”

Your knowledge and your experiences hail from the past, but you always decide for the future. Therefore: See more, understand more, and hence have more of the future!

You can live quite well without futurists. But you cannot make a single entrepreneurial decision – about personnel, about investments, about retractions – without making assumptions about the future. Every one of your decisions is based on future assumptions.

Nobody can predict the future. But you can improve upon the assumptions and knowledge about the future you hold today.

Trends and technology are considered factors of the future that drive the change of societies and markets. They determine which business areas and professions decline or even disappear and which ones will grow and emerge. They determine how, and more importantly, what you will live off in the future.

Your future management answers existential questions: What lies ahead? What doesn’t? What might surprise us? How do we become future robust? Which vision do we focus on? What is right and relevant to the future? What do we do about it?

Future knowledge is only useful if it offers benefits in the here and now. Everything else is pure entertainment.

We collect, analyze, and structure the future knowledge of pioneers, revolutionaries, researchers, and developers all over the world. We compare their statements and examine them based on their content and meaning.

We track all major trends and technologies that influence the life and markets of the future. We focus on more than just the universally known mega trends such as urbanization, mobilization, and the shrinking of resources.

In addition to the 35 great global trends, we track about 700 additional trends, technologies, and topics of the future.

The future factors that you do not deal with on a daily basis are the ones that might harbor threats and opportunities.

One of the first steps in our collaboration offers an individual roadmap of the future factors that are or will be relevant to you, respectively factors you can make relevant.

The FMG FutureNet is, as far as we know, the most comprehensive and powerful net of knowledge about trends, technologies, and future markets. It works like a brain. More than 700 trends and technologies and thousands of projections and signals turn it into an enormously valuable knowledge base for us – and hence for you.

The FMG FutureNet is your door to the world of future knowledge. The base of knowledge in the FutureNet and its artificially intelligent algorithms make it possible to automatically scan the Internet and external databanks for relevant future knowledge.

The FutureNet is far more than a trend data bank. The FutureNet automatically evaluates documents based on syntax, grammar, and semantic-logical criteria and suggests to assign them to certain trends and technologies.

In the FutureNet, you can also document and update your entire strategy in logical structures. This means that you link your vision, your guidelines, and your goals with your current projects, and those projects with the future assumptions they are based upon, and those, in turn, with the relevant trends and technologies.

If conditions change, you can easily see the impact on your strategy. You cannot do that with PowerPoint and Excel. The FutureNet makes possible what to most still seems very difficult or even impossible.

Discuss your thoughts and questions with FMG's experts!

In a video conference via TEAMS or ZOOM or simply by phone, Berthold Müssig will advise you on your considerations and questions. In this way, you can easily find out whether and in what form FUTURE RADAR is useful for you and your company.
