What is going to be the next "big thing" in the next 5-10 years?

What do you think will be the next big trend or focus for businesses in the next decade?

In all honesty, I think the next big thing in the time span you've mentioned will be companies abandoning or tweaking their Robotic/Drone/Artificial Intelligence presence to a more human approach.

Just as currently we are seeing the most successful companies are the ones with not only the best user experience but the best customer experience. Building a "well-known" or "respected" brand amounts for very little if you dehumanize your customers.

Companies will have to be very intentional and careful with their implementations of chatbots, artificial intelligence algorithms and the like to succeed. Although we all crave efficiency and profits, when humanity becomes too disconnected, we risk much more.

Oh Jef I do hope so! Successful business is about relationship and if we lose the balance we are all doomed, business or not!

I believe the next big thing is already starting to emerge. A cultural shift away from employment towards starting a small business.
