Over the last twelve years I have been consulting on strategy and innovation with organizations, from the Top 10 of the Fortune 100, to start-ups and not-for-profits. During this period I’ve seen a quiet revolution in the way that strategic planning is carried out. It used to be that leading corporations relied on rigorous annual strategic planning processes, yet in a VUCA world - one of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity – markets and customers are now moving too fast for traditional models of strategy planning.

Big developments to expect this year are the extensive use of programmatic buying, the market valuation of native advertising, and the surge of new technologies and media outlets.
