Thinking like a futurist_22 Sep 2014
The world we live and work in right now is characterized by complexity, uncertainty and turbulence. This makes choosing and implementing strategy more difficult than it’s ever been. This programme aims to provide your team with the insights, mind-sets and tools needed to understand the forces shaping the world right now, and instil confidence in their ability to identify, anticipate and respond to the change drivers that will disrupt our world in the near future.

This programme is about five key skills every manager and leader needs, in order to navigate turbulent times. The five key steps required to scan the horizon of your industry and company’s marketplace, and show you how to spot the trends, cycles, patterns and systems that will impact you in the near future.

Participants will leave with an understanding of the forces that are shaping their industry, their clients and their markets in the next few years, be equipped with a model and method of keeping up to date with these changes, and be confident in their ability to anticipate and respond to these forces on behalf of their company and their clients.

The best way to predict the future is to create it. In the end, this is the key take away value from this programme.
