Strategist Spotlight: Main Management

Unless you’re a scriptwriter on The Simpsons, you probably shouldn’t be trying to predict the future. One quick survey found that the long-running television show got at least 18 future events correct before they happened.

We all know predicting the future is not only hard—it’s really not possible. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make accurate assumptions about life tomorrow.

One of those assumptions we feel good about? That humans will keep pushing their capabilities to the max and innovating.

In today’s Strategist Spotlight, we’re featuring Main Management and their Thematic Innovation Rotation strategy, which, in their words, attempts to incorporate “exposure to where the puck is going.”
