Significance and Impact

  • Major. Major development are often considered significant events across more than one region and/or sector. They have global or multi-region impact either directly or indirectly.

  • Medium. Medium developments are significant within one region or sector.

  • Minor. Minor developments impact certain countries and sectors or sub-sectors specifically. They may mark a small but important milestone.

We are now moving to HolonOS calculated Significance scores between 0 and 5 which quantitatively score the significance of the development.
