PDI – Purpose-Driven Innovation – is our analytical framework and methodology designed to guide professionals and the wider world in identifying and acting on meaningful business opportunities.
We have been using the core elements of this framework for over 10 years now, and our latest round of work guarantees it will continue to push the envelope in 2022, if not until 2030.
From our Innovation of the Day to our monthly MakeShift publication – we deliver fresh new ideas and insights to 1,000+ South African professionals (and 100,000+ subscribers worldwide).
💌 As well as weekly emails, you can also receive our Free Trend Updates daily via WhatsApp, Telegram, and Slack.
We also offer some of the most successful tools that we have developed over the years to work with trends, for free, on our Toolbox page.
