Everyone has a crystal ball for 2011

January 6, 2011

With so many prediction slideshows published on SlideShare in the past week, we're beginning to feel like the crystal ball for 2011! We've selected a few slideshows to share with you. Each of the following presentations goes a step further than providing only a list. They explain what the predictions are based on and how they will affect businesses. A few of the presentations offer recommendations for what companies can do to stay in step with the leading trends. We'll continue to put these trend-watchers on our home page, so check back throughout the month.

More than just a list, Mindshare's "10 x 10 Trends for 2010 and 2011," includes articles with some deep dives into predictive analysis.

In its "Eleven Digital Trends to Watch in 2011," Edelman Digital pairs recommendations and best practices with each prediction. This addition of practical advice with each trend has resulted in over 5800 views 51 favorites and 24 embeds in less than 24 hours since it was published.

JWT Intelligence's presentation has already received over 192,000 views, 555 favorites and has been embedded more than 525 times. Their predictions go beyond technology to include culture and behavior trends in "100 Things to Watch in 2011."
