“Over the course of many classes I have used “The Age Curve” as a reference in many different research contexts. Most recently it was a topic of Diversity Management and how to gain a competitive edge through managing a diverse workforce well. My big ending in this case was how dramatically the focus of “diversity” will shift to generational diversity and some of the implications to management. Your work is always a great closer.”
Senior Manager: Mercedes Benz

The Age Curve
For years, marketers have held on to unwavering beliefs that have dictated how they market to their consumers. But the hard truth is that the changes we see in marketing and business are based on one undeniable factor—the size of the generations we are selling to. As each generation ages, what they buy and how much they buy will change. Each product and service has a “best customer” that sustains a business. As these customers grow up, the smartest marketers will stay ahead of them—and their money. In The Age Curve, marketing guru Kenneth Gronbach shows executives and entrepreneurs how to anticipate this wave of predictable demand and ride it to success.
Generational marketing is founded on the rise and fall of the size of populations, and their effects on economics, social issues and business -- in whatever geographical confines they may exist. In the United States, generational marketing is particularly pronounced because there is an enormous rise and fall in populations. Huge numbers are preceded by small numbers, and then followed by small numbers. They significantly change things in the economy. They significantly change things in education. They significantly change things in government. They significantly change things in business. And these are all very predictable things. Generational marketing is understanding what's next.
