  • Trends to Watch in 2018
    Friday, January 5, 2018 6:00 AM
    Prepare for change or be an agent of change this year.

    That’s the overwhelming theme from 13 leaders in the Greater Des Moines business community about trends coming up in 2018. The Business Record asked leaders from a variety of industries for two things: their forecast for what could come up in their industry or field in the next 12 months and the accompanying impact. They were also asked to include a “way too early prediction” for 10 years in the future.

    In the baker’s dozen of responses included in this issue, the message of change resonated clearly — from the craft cocktail industry looking for policy change to data analytics and technology use in the transportation sector to the cultural shifts being experienced in workplace cultures and the artistic community.

    The answers surprised and informed us, and we hope you enjoy the same experience.

    Happy New Year!
    Suzanne Behnke, Business Record editor
