Intro to Micro-Generations
Instructor: Armida Ascano
Download the Micro-Generations Matrix Trend ReportTrend Hunter's Chief Insights Officer, Armida Ascano, introduces you to the Micro-Generations Matrix as a new approach to examining generational trends. She outlines the methodology, advantages, and objectives of Trend Hunter's approach to segmentation. This begins with acknowledging the stereotypes many generational trends are based in, as well as the origin stories of each well-known generational segment.
What's interesting, however, is not the way generational segmentation categorizes consumers, but the unexpected commonalities outside of those categories. Therein lies the thinking behind the Micro-Generations Matrix -- it is an interesting new way to rethink both key variables, and shared experiences of groups born within a similar time frame, as well as how this will impact generational trends moving forward. Are you ready for the future of generational study?
