Communications Trend Radar

2023 // Communications Trend Radar - presentation of the five key trends

February 2, 2023, 11:30 - 12:30 CET

For the third consecutive year, Professor Ansgar Zerfaß and Professor Stefan Stieglitz will present the research findings of the annual Communications Trend Radar. 

Over the past months, the Academic Society for Management & Communication has scanned hundreds of business and academic publications to select the most relevant topics from business management, technology, and society. These related fields are usually more difficult to grasp for communicators than developments within the communications sector itself.

As a result, we identified five trends for 2023 – trends that have the potential to change communications profoundly or that offer new opportunities for communicators to position themselves as thought leaders.

2021 // Communications Trend Radar - Official presentation of the 5 key trends

February 12, 2021; 11:30 - 12:30 CET

Which trends will influence corporate communications in 2021? The Communications Trend Radar is a science-based trend study combining insights from practice and knowledge from academia. It identifies and selects trends in the fields of society, management, and technology that will be of particular relevance for communications departments. A research team from Leipzig University and the University of Duisburg-Essen conducted a systematic analysis of numerous scientific and international journals, studies of management and technology consultancies, and social media to reveal relevant topics and trends.


In a 60-minute digital workshop, we did present the five key trends for 2021: Why are they important? And how will they change the work of communications departments? Here you will find the recording of the session.
