The 7 Trends of 2013 Report | McCrindle ResearchA key part of the environmental scans we conduct for organisations and industries, and the research analysis that we are commissioned to conduct involves identifying and tracking emerging trends.

Here we’ve compiled the Top 7 Trends to watch in 2013. It’s no longer enough to just observe the changing times, business leaders have to understand the shifts and be prepared ahead of times to respond to the changes.
