Going Deeper

My PhD research is focused on the "Industries of the Future"

More formally, I am answering the following question:

"How does a place-based economic development strategy support long-term peri-urban prosperity in the knowledge economy?"

There are a number of factors that I am including in this research.

These include:

  • Strategic Foresight methods

  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation

  • The Triple-helix (government-business-academia)

  • Computerisation, automation and employment

  • Multi-factor productivity and emplyment multipliers

  • Network Theory

  • KIBS, Clusters and Knowledge Spillovers

Strategic Foresight provides a clear pathway forward 

You become future ready though the use of Strategic Foresight tools

These tools support better quality strategic thinking, robust inputs to the strategy planning process and deeper understanding of the future

The aim of Strategic Foresight is to help organisations of any size, whether public, private or community, consider the possibilities of alternate futures.  

These tools can help you:

  • Build scenarios and understand their impact

  • Establish a new vision, or repair an old one

  • Understand the forces that are driving change

  • Prepare for potential risk and opportunities

  • Create a shared understanding of the future

  • To bring clarity to complex situations

  • Bring fresh insights from emerging issues
