Intro & Welcome
Welcoming to the session; basic context; culture for the day, ice breaker
Session 1: Using the future
Become familiar with how to “use the future” through strategic foresight and why the capability to develop insights about future alternatives to guide strategic thinking has never been more important.
Session 4: Building futures scenarios
Learn how to frame and develop viable alternative futures scenarios and discover alternative futures perspectives that have relevance for present-day decision-making.
Session 2: Exploring dynamics of change
Learn the process of exploring dynamics of change as the “bedrock”-practice of strategic foresight, e.g. by applying the Futures Triangle as an explorative tool.
Session 5: Transitioning from foresight to strategy
Learn how to understand the strategic implications of alternative futures and how to transition the newly gained insights into futures-informed strategic decision-making – in comparison to traditional strategy approaches.
Session 3: Discovering key strategic uncertainties
The future is inherently uncertain and decision-making under uncertainty is difficult. Learn how to identify and make sense of the uncertainties that matter the most, by understanding the degree of uncertainty surrounding impactful strategic issues.
Session 6: Be inspired to inspire the change
Small steps can eventually make a big impact! Be inspired to find ways to operationalize your newfound strategic foresight skills and insights into your existing work, team, or organizational culture.
