2023 Outlook

We’ve collected 29 Perspectives On What To Expect In 2023…in one place. All Things Insights at TMRE and All Things Innovation at FEI captured an outlook statement from leaders in each respective space. Access the Report now.

Here are a few highlights: 

“The key is to focus on what you can really control and influence. The rest will just drive you crazy.”
Pete Dulcamara, VP, Corporate Research Organization, Site Leader, Innovation and Operational Excellence Center, Kimberly-Clark.

“Good effective insights do basically three things. They inspire, enable and optimize.” 
Stephan Gans, SVP, Chief Consumer Insights and Analytics Officer, PepsiCo. 

“The inflation on both prices and salaries, the push for diverse talent in attracting diverse talent in the workplace. That’s all going to be very difficult in 2023 when you have a limited budget.” 
Serena Huang, Global Head of People Analytics, Visualization & HR Technology, PayPal.

“I think you’re going to see a slight slowing in the metaverse. But I like to separate the metaverse from digital twin because digital twins are absolutely the most import thing for us to grasp and to recognize. They belong in our homes. A digital twin is really that relationship between the digitization of the physical environment.” 
Poppy Crum, Adjunct Professor, Stanford University 

“In times of crises or in times of challenges, we should use the resources to put our heads down and into the day today and help our workers, our sales, and different teams that are into the day-to-day operations to be even smarter.” 
Christian Saclier, VP Design Innovation, PepsiCo.

Each page features key thoughts from our community. No matter where you are on the spectrum of outcome, you’ll be able to find likeminded insight along with counter-point-of-view.  One key reason that we fused thoughts from our innovation and insights communities was the bi-lateral feedback coming out of our respective Spend & Trends Reports. Per our Insights Spend & Trends Report, when asked for their “current area of focus,” our insights community’s highest response was to “support the product development & innovation teams.” When asked, “for the next six months, how do you expect ‘innovation spend’ to change?” the top answer was to increase spend on “Insights.”

And so, please enjoy…and use the 2023 Outlook on Insights and Innovation.
