Workshop: The Futures School Spotlight: Foresight Training for an Uncertain World


Abstract

The Futures School Spotlight is an interactive and project-based program that empowers participants with the critical skills of Strategic Foresight and Futures Thinking for a new era of complexity and change.
The vision for this brand new approach to Strategic Foresight has been years in the making and emerged from a realization that a gap exists between our increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world and the antiquated leadership and business development approaches we have depended on for too long.
TFS Spotlight is designed to help leaders and entrepreneurs learn the basics of futures-empowered strategy, business intelligence, innovation and organizational development. Learn how to apply foresight to everyday challenges and build deep, meaningful action and value.
