Learn how 2030 influences your 2020 planning

Complimentary Foundational Futures and Foresight Training


Is your planning process too short-term oriented?

Do your plans effectively address uncertainty in a structured way?

Are the drivers of change known and monitored by your organization?


Futures and foresight techniques can help you better anticipate and prepare for uncertain environments in the strategic planning process.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first publication of Future Shock, Alvin and Heidi Toffler's pioneering bestseller in the futures field.

  • Leaders who want to understand how they can Future Proof® their organizations

Attendees will leave with an understanding of:

  • What is futures/foresight and its role in strategic planning
  • How a structured process can help identify potential opportunities and risks
  • How to apply futures principles to today’s planning
  • How scenario planning is used to guide near-term actions
