conversations about the future Need THree things
An Integral Frame
An integral approach to the future integrates people, culture, process and context. It recognises that people create the future in their daily conversations, decisions and actions that are in turn shaped by their mindsets, assumptions and biases. This is the frame helps us re-connect strategic process and people.
A Foresight Lens
A foresight lens enables us to escape the constraints of status-quo thinking and build the knowledge and skills we need to use the future today, to explore it not predict it, to prepare for it, not react to it. Foresight helps us build our futures agency, our ability as individuals and organisations to shape the future.
Re-connecting strategic process and people happens when we create time and spaces for collaborative conversations - where people come together to use their futures agency, explore ideas and assumptions about the future, think in multiples and grapple with the complexity of the emergent future.
