As we get ready for 2017, it’s time to reflect on the amazing year that we had at Kedge, helping clients and professionals all over the world to discover and create the future for better strategy, innovation and organizational transformation.
Besides all of the amazing clients we worked with, from Fortune 100’s to non-profits – and you know who you are – we again travelled across the globe to build future-empowered organizations and creative futures thinkers.
And as we look to 2017, our hope is that you defeat any fear of uncertainty and complexity using foresight: a mindset and toolkit that lets you take hold of the possibilities that lay ahead.
We at Kedge strongly believe in the incredible power of deep and intentional futures thinking and foresight to create transformative outcomes and build pathways to aspirational tomorrows.
In this time of great international upheaval, savvy leaders, businesses and organizations need to purposefully build those long-range visions that have the power to change our actions and outcomes in the here and now. Much like the global financial crisis of 2008, we need to leverage the power of robust foresight to uncover new opportunities and pull the future we want to see into the plans and actions that we take today.
Now is not the time to cower in fear and wait in hope that things will return to normal. Futures Thinkers are bold people, courageous people, and designers of humanity. We cannot leave the future in the hands of politicians or pundits who believe the way forward exists in our past or should be shaped by fear. We must discover the emerging landscapes of change, and leverage them to create the future today.
Thank you to each and everyone of our Kedge clients and alumni for making 2016 an amazing year. Can’t wait to create the future with you in 2017!
