The Radar framework dates back to 2019 when we started publishing the Nets Payments Outlook.

Through a rigorous research process of primary in-house sources, and external industry experts, trends in each dimension was identified and scored in relation to the
perceived impact and the
time to impact. Intuitively, the closer a trend is to the middle, the bigger impact it will have in the shortest timeframe. Last piece of the process was a search for patterns between the trends, which ultimately led to the creation of the 5 themes of the Nets Payments Outlook 2022.
