ASPIRATIONAL GAPS

Identiying and Targeting Consumer Personas in Innovation Strategy

Introduction

We rarely attain all we aspire, we also rarely eat the way we aspire to eat, live as healthily as we aspire to, or even care for the planet as much as we aspire to do. This gap between what we aspire to do and what we actually do amounts to a series of tradeoffs we are willing to make each and every day. These in-the-moment tradeoffs show us what kind of person we are as well as how strongly we will hold to our aspirations. They also tell us a lot about the environment we live in and create unique opportunities for innovators to make it easier for people to fulfill their aspirational goals.

The biggest gaps in aspirations today are related to sustainability. We are seeing the consumers and the industry change in tandem, driving change toward a more sustainable future.
