Strategic Foresight

Strategic foresight often uses future views and scenarios to help envision how the future could look like. The aim is NOT to PREDICT the future, but to make participants of a process AWARE of possible futures and thereby to be READY, both mentally and in making better strategies and decisions today.

We often use too much energy in analyzing and investigating the present and historical facts. Just think about the endless strategy methods focusing on the present.

But the most profound earnings are in making good decisions today on the basis of how the future unfolds.

So in my experience when making strategies it is very important to try to handle the question: "What if A or B or C happens, what do we do then?".
