Forces of Change.
Expert insights for your marketing.
In its book, Beyond Advertising: Creating Value Through All Customer Touchpoints, the Wharton Future of Advertising Program (WFoA) enlisted over 200 global leaders and visionaries to consider the future of advertising, marketing, and, by extension, business. The book identified five forces of change fundamentally changing the relationship among brands, media, and people.
Hearts & Science sponsored an initiative with Wharton to explore these Forces of Change, and how they come to life in today’s marketplace. We hope these materials spark conversation and debate—and spur action within the industry to address the challenges these forces create.
Hearts & Science is tackling the biggest problems facing our industry, from measurement to brand safety to success in mobile. We’re releasing original content throughout the year, so be sure to check back—and let us know what you think with #forcesofchange.
