Why Take This Course
Throughout human history, new technologies have been major drivers of economic, political, social and environmental change. For the past 250 years, such impacts have played out over a succession of industrial revolutions beginning with steam powered production then mass production, followed by increased digitalization, and now the rapid convergence and diffusion technologies across all industries.
This course will introduce participants to a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods that technology forecasters and futurists use when considering potential impacts that evolving, emerging and converging technologies might have on their organizations, industries and society. By challenging assumptions and working through a range of scenarios, participants will develop the knowledge and skills needed to better assess how technologies may impact their future.
