Megatrends: There have been megatrends or the formation of large transformational waves having relevance to technology. Technologies grow as megatrends to power or leverage related megatrends. Often those megatrends also fuel the formation of technology megatrends as well. There appears to be reinforcing or virtuous relations between technology waves and other megatrends. Megatrends are large, social, economic, political, environmental or technological change that are slow to form, but once in place can influence a wide range of activities, processes, and perceptions, possibly for decades. And most importantly, once the technology megatrends resonate with other trends, creative disruptive changes take place–destroying existing jobs, firms and industries, and creating new ones. Our objective is to study such megatrends having relations with the technologies of our interest. Making sense, and making use, of these dramatic forces of change will help you to make better strategic choices, shape markets to your advantage, and create a brighter future.
