    Dan Fukushima's Expertise:


    Macro Societal Drivers of Change

    Following the approaches used by Alvin and Heidi Toffler, Dan highlights several macro drivers of change and, taking a holistic and systems view, identifies potential outcomes across society. Making specific predictions are difficult in our complex interconnected world, but thinking about possible futures can lead to better preparation and even the ability to influence the future.


    Foresight in Strategic Planning

    Strategic planning horizons have been getting shorter as the pace of change, primarily driven by technology, has been getting faster. Frequently, it’s because of the idea that too much is going to change so it’s not worth planning too far in advance. Dan leads organizations in looking beyond the typical time horizon to understand potential futures and the actions they can take today to prepare to success.
