As society shifts in completely new ways, opportunities will emerge to reframe the future. To identify the correct path, organizations must challenge currently held assumptions about customer and workforce strategies, where competition will come from, and where growth will be made.

The EY Megatrends framework exposes business leaders to trends and forces far outside their usual scope of analysis, reducing the risk of missing out on, or being sidelined by, the “next big thing.” Building your transformation journey on future, not current state, has never been more crucial.
