Today’s challenging landscape is the new reality. It requires businesses to embrace innovative leadership and organization development approaches to remain competitive. Learning how to effectively harness the future for more resilient and transformative decision making today is the key to success in this volatile and uncertain environment. This webcast will provide an overview of the strategic foresight toolkit—featured in the July 2015 issue of TD at Work—which allows individuals and organizations to:

  • Discover the personal and organizational biases that become blinders to new ideas and potential disruptors.
  • Explore the environment for emerging issues in society, technology, the environment, economics, and politics.
  • Map the probable, provocative, and preferred futures of our most pressing focal issues so that we can be prepared no matter what future emerges.
  • Create detailed action plans that translate our futures intelligence into profitable outcomes, today.

After attending this webcast, you will be able to:

  • Define strategic foresight and outline the business imperative for foresight.
  • Describe how to leverage both the push and the pull of the future.
  • Provide guidance on putting strategic foresight into practice.
  • Explain how applying the Natural Foresight Framework (discover, explore, map, and create) can help you become a futurist leader.
