Perspective and Trend Convergence
Multiple Perspectives on the Same Issue
The key to Adaptability Canada’s trend analysis is enabling a broader perspective on key issues affecting what we do and how we do it. The insights resulting from broader perspective provide us the ability to plan better, smarter and incorporate a higher level of flexibility and scalability at both strategic and operational levels.
Trend convergence is a theory explaining why and how multiple trends converge to affect strategic policy, whole markets and segments of society. From disruptive forces to driving social evolution, these converging trends impact the success of our strategy in both seen and unseen ways.
For Adaptability Canada, it is critically to understand how these trends impact long term strategy for developing a built environment and public spaces that drives consistently high levels of service excellence and at the same time minimizes and manages risk for public and private organizations.
