Inexact renderings of the known world in the 1500s successfully guided exploration, development, and investment in a period of remarkable economic expansion. Today, insightful market analysis constructs images of the future that guide innovation and strategy. Just like the coarse maps used during the Age of Exploration, timely maps of emerging opportunities have much higher value than precise renderings of known opportunities.
