Research has shown the typical reaction to uncertainty is anxiety, and even physical nausea. We prefer to know what is going to happen and when. That’s the case in all aspects of life, from running an organization, to managing our personal and professional lives.
But in today’s environment, where change is increasingly frequent and large-scale, traditional linear approaches to planning for the future are less effective. It leaves you vulnerable to disruption, and unable to capitalize on hidden opportunities.
Enter Strategic Foresight — a cutting-edge framework that allows you to create functional views of alternative futures and possibilities. You can then identify the most robust strategy that would allow you to thrive, regardless of which future unfolds. Through this process, you will be primed to take advantage of opportunities while remaining prepared for potential disruption.
This 90-minute-long breakfast session will provide an introduction to the concept of Strategic Foresight, as well as additional resources to learn more. One resource is The Futures School, a 3-day certificate program where you learn foresight tools with hands-on exercises and small-group interaction.
The Futures School Instructors Frank Spencer and Yvette Montero Salvatico have spent years speaking around the world and teaching Strategic Foresight in large corporations like Disney, Edmunds, and Daimler. Now you can learn the same tools that these large corporations use to ensure success in an age of increasing uncertainty.
Join us live in Atlanta, or via livestream, to learn more about Strategic Foresight and The Futures School.
