Description
We're living in a time of immense disruptive change -- rapidly sinking housing markets, credit crises, massive layoffs, bankruptcies and dramatic changes in business models. How can your organization have the strategic foresight to weather uncertain times? What forecasting techniques and futures thinking capabilities will help get you through the tough times? What is your organization's preferred future? Do you have the tools to get there? Dr. Peter Bishop, professor in futures studies at the University of Houston and founding member of the Association of Professional Futurists, will provide an overview of strategic foresight in organizations and describe the tools that professional futurists use to prepare for the future. Learn the difference between traditional forecasting and studies of the future. "Learning faster than your competitors is the only sustainable competitive advantage in an environment of rapid innovation and change", said Arie de Geus, former Director of Corporate Planning for Royal Dutch Shell Group. Peter Bishop will introduce you to future thinking techniques that will help you prepare for this environment of rapid change.
