Edible Packaging, Heads-Up Movement and Haptic Technology—just a few items from our annual list of 100 Things to Watch for the year ahead. It’s a wide-rang
Jim Meredith's insight:

I've always like these JWT outlooks. Most interesting to me are the number of very clever ideas burbling up in the economy. Most relevant to me are the mashups I can create from them that inform our strategic contexts.

Per usual, the comments make for very interesting reading. Lots of pushback on open plan, hoteling, etc. This is not surprising given that they've just started moving in. It will be interesting to see how they feel in 6 months. I sure hope someone is doing before/after surveys.

Sven Schelwach's curator insight, August 30, 2013 5:58 AM

...some people argue design-thinking is dead. I think that might be true for some parts of the world, and possibly the terminology, but the concepts are very much alive. Whether we adress the related challenges and processes as design-thinking or not is secondary. The concepts need to be put to practice, and ideally combined with what I would refer to as sustainable-design-thinking. :-)
