Futures and Foresight taster course
The purpose of the workshop is to provide an introduction to Futures and Foresight and can lead into the Future and foresight programme.
Organisations in the UK and around the world are facing a significant future of uncertainty which is likely to continue for several months, if not years. The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is already resulting in new ways of living and working. This dynamic will continue to unfold. The anticipation of the future will play an important role in the safeguarding and improvement of organisations.

Futures and Foresight is the interdisciplinary process to discover and understand possible, plausible, probable, desirable and createable long term futures.
For leaders of organisations, the integration of Futures and Foresight skills into their activities means they can more effectively anticipate and influence the future and work towards their preferred future. However, very few leaders have integrated Futures and Foresight into their organisations with the result that they have to respond in a very reactive manner to what happens.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide an introduction to Futures and Foresight and can lead into the Futures and Foresight course.
It is suited to groups of between 6 and 20 and can be delivered over 90 mins, as follows:
- Setting the theme and focus
- Setting questions for the future – usually 10 years from the present
- Key features of futures and foresight
- Outlines of mini-scenarios
