Ever wondered how to think like a futurist? It can be learned. We introduce basic premises, concepts, thinking skills & frameworks for rigorous imagining to help entrepreneurs, designers and changemakers to thrive in the face of uncertainty.

The following approaches will be used to develop a greater understanding of foresight:

  • Images of the future and the three P's – possible, probable, preferable
  • 4D foresight – difference, diversity, depth and design
  • Long range scenario generation through deductive forecasting
  • Games for change – playful structures for improvisation and applied creativity

Participants take away foundational concepts and methodologies used in Strategic Foresight and tools for immediate application in strategic conversation and other professional contexts
