Over the next 15 years, we will experience more changes than in all of human history to date. So how do we as engineers, marketers, designers, innovators and executives stay ahead of that change and help chart our own course?

Megatrends shape both our physical and digital worlds, and this year we focus on how they are shaping our experiences as human beings. Everything from how we pay for things to how we learn and stay healthy, Megatrends are impacting nearly every experience we have.

At HP, we believe major socio-economic, demographic and technological trends occurring across the globe will have a sustained, transformative impact on the world in the years ahead – on businesses, societies, economies, cultures and our personal lives.
