Look ahead

Look ahead

"Foresight is not about predicting the future. It's about minimising surprise" - Karl Shroeder

How can you plan ahead when so much is uncertain and changing all the time?

Predicting the future is impossible, or at the very least highly risky and unreliable.  But this doesn’t mean you have to sail blind.

Just as you might do risk analysis to explore and mitigate possible risks, we help you to explore possible futures, what you can do to create the one you want and avoid the ones you don’t.

We work with you and your team to get crystal clear on your goals and objectives, including exploring possible trade-offs.  We then help you identify different possible scenarios and the key environmental drivers or change points that may shape your journey.

Just as a weather forecast helps you know what kind of seas you may face before you set sail, we can help you get a sense of both the possible challenges and opportunities on the journey to your preferred outcomes.

We specialise in:
– Environmental scans – identify the key trends likely to shape your world in the years to come;
– Future scenarios – explore the different possible futures, so you can plan for them, or to avoid them!
– Future state story maps – give the future flesh and blood through the power of stories developed by your staff and stakeholders
