Why a Consistent Practice of Foresight Matters to Your Organization in 2016

Jeff De Cagna

It’s time for your organization to begin creating a more vibrant future, something you cannot do without a consistent practice of foresight. As a leader, instead of treating the future as a task you’ll get to when you have time, you must strive to make sense of what’s next for your customers or clients, make meaning around its implications for your organization and make decisions to help shape the future before it arrives.

This session will explore what it takes to build a consistent practice of foresight and how your organization can invite your customers or clients to be contributors to the work of foresight.
