Join cultural anthropologist Ujwal Arkalgud in this fast-paced innovation session where he will outline the anatomy of a trend and give you a tangible framework that you can apply to your insights, foresights, and innovation pipeline. Specifically, in this session Ujwal will aim to answer the following questions:

  • What is a trend and how does it originate?
  • What is the difference between a trend and a manifestation? Why a focus on manifestations can be dangerous in innovation.
