Background[edit]

Ken Dychtwald grew up in Newark, NJ. He received his Ph.D. in psychology from Union Graduate School. In 1973, at age 23, he became co-director of the SAGE Project.[5] Funded by the National Institutes of Health, SAGE investigated how newly popular mind/body disciplines, such as yoga, meditation, nutrition therapy, and biofeedback could improve the health and well-being of older adults. At age 27, he published his first book, Bodymind,[6] based on his doctoral thesis. In 1982, Dychtwald joined a panel created by the Office of Technology Assessment, a think tank for the US Congress, to examine how population aging would impact America in the 21st century.[7]

In 1986, Dychtwald founded the California Bay Area-based think tank Age Wave, the world’s leading advisor to companies and government groups regarding product and service development for men and women aged 50+.[8] His client list has included over half the Fortune 500, and his innovative solutions have catalyzed a broad spectrum of industry sectors—from pharmaceuticals and medical technology, to automotive design and retail merchandising, to financial services and healthcare.

Dychtwald produced and hosted the 2007 two-hour PBS special, The Boomer Century: 1946-2046.[9] His most recent PBS special With Purpose: Going from Success to Significance In Work and Life aired nationwide in 2009 to coincide with the book release of the same title.[10][11]

In 1996 and again in 2013, Dychtwald received the American Society on Aging Award for outstanding national leadership in the field of aging.[12]

Dychtwald is deeply involved in numerous activities for the public good including the Alzheimer’s XPRIZE, which he co-envisioned with XPRIZE Founder Dr. Peter Diamandis in 2012. The Alzheimer’s XPRIZE team is now preparing to globally crowdsource a new 21st century approach to ending Alzheimer’s disease.[13]

In 1983, Dychtwald married Maddy Kent Dychtwald, a professional lecturer, author and co-founder of Age Wave.[14] They have two children, Casey and Zak.

Consumer and social theories[edit]

Age Wave[edit]

Ken Dychtwald developed the concept of the Age Wave, which refers specifically to a massive population and cultural shift caused by the converging global demographic forces of the baby boom of the middle twentieth century, increasing life expectancy, and the declining fertility rates of the later twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

Dychtwald argues that as the boomer generation continues to mature, life’s second half will be further transformed and that, in the next several decades, this age wave will shift the epicenter of consumer activity from a focus on youth to the needs, challenges, and aspirations of maturing consumers. According to Dychtwald, the Age Wave will also put unprecedented pressure on families, communities and governments as multiplying numbers of older adults strain entitlements, eldercare, healthcare delivery and pensions.[15]

Middlescence[edit]

In 1988, Dychtwald began popularizing the term “middlescence" a theory which suggests that with the modern postponement of old age due to extended longevity, and the multiplying numbers of people who were reinventing themselves post-youth, a new middlescent lifestage was rising up between 45 and 65.
