Future Factors: Harnessing Societal Change to Your Advantage

Kimberly Lear

We are in the midst of a period of great change in organizational structure and consumer behavior. Hierarchies are flattening, networks are being created, the traditional “American Dream” is being challenged, and constant disruption is forcing established industries to work harder to remain relevant.

Our ability to understand the factors that shape the behaviors of future clients and employees is critical as we create innovative solutions in an ever-changing landscape.

The three most impactful future factors identified and researched by the Inlay Team are: hierarchy vs. network, unprecedented access, and the experience economy. In this program, we’ll explore how these future factors are changing the way we work, the way we buy and the way we live.
