Deciphering the Future: Leading into Tomorrow

Joseph Micallef

From the Delphic Oracle to computer simulations, humankind has been attempting to divine the future. Anticipating the future is critical to formulating a strategic plan. Yet there is no other human activity whose practitioners have been so consistently wrong. Why do futurists so often fail? How can we lead an organization and make decisions when the future is indecipherable? What processes do we utilize to plan for a future we can’t anticipate and how do we implement, execute and, when necessary, modify a strategy that presupposes either multiple, incompatible outcomes or outcomes that can’t even be imagined?

What You Will Learn:

– How to think of the future. Why do futurists fail?
– How to deal with an opaque future.
– What are the major macro trends that will shape the 21st century?
