Strategic Foresight

"Imagine and Navigate the Future"

The future has never been more uncertain. Old industries are being swept aside by imaginative innovators. Millions of traditional jobs are being automated as millions of other new roles are being created for the first time. And all the while, environmental stresses like Covid-19 and climate change are driving the need to reimagine our relationship with our organizations, our communities, and the planet itself.

Working with the same types of tools used by Accenture, Microsoft, Toyota and other leading global organizations, this active learning course will provide you with the frameworks needed to scan for signs of change, imagine future scenarios for your team, organization, industry, or community, and develop skills needed to become a more resilient and adaptive leader for a disruptive and changing world.
