It’s jokingly said that “prediction is hard – especially when it’s about the future.”
But what if you could know today what tomorrow holds, at least partially? Innovation timelines offer a glimpse of new features, functions, and business models that will be available to you, your customers, and competitors. When will Apple’s thinner, lighter VR glasses be in the market, and will they connect with your self-driving car or sidewalk robot? Will animal-free meat be available in your city’s supermarkets in 2025, how many people will still be working from home, and will we have kicked our addiction to oil? And how will all of this affect our businesses, policies, and our lives?
