Workshops and Surveys
Facilitating the discovery of “over the horizon” risks and opportunities.
A team that shares a common understanding of the challenges that the future holds is better equipped to make quality decisions.
What it is: Workshops and surveys using proven futures-focused processes.
Who's it for: Teams and groups that need to develop a shared understanding of the challenges of the future.
The outcome: Fresh insights into the risks and opportunities that are "over the horizon".
The first horizon is how things are right now.
The third horizon is how things will be in the future.
The second horizon is the change between now and the future.
Now, consider the changes you have witnessed.
Take retail shopping for example. In the early 2000's it was all about the shopping mall and bricks and mortar outlets. This is the first horizon.
Today, in the time of the second horizon (that messy middle time-frame) we are seeing the rise of internet shopping.
And tomorrow, the third horizon, what will retail shopping look like? The collapse of chain stores, the rise of niche shops, drone delivery of goods?
Consider your organisation's response.
Do you ignore these changes and carry on as you always have?
Do you look for the seeds of change around you now and prepare the future that they will grow into?
Are your considering what the future will be like as you make those long-term decisions?
My "Futures" consultancy services will help you look for these seeds and how you should respond.
