Strategic foresight, also known as futures thinking or futures planning, is a proactive and systematic approach to understanding and anticipating future possibilities, trends, uncertainties, and disruptions that could impact an organization, industry, or society. It involves analyzing a wide range of potential future scenarios to inform present-day decision-making and strategic planning.
Strategic foresight is particularly valuable in a rapidly changing and uncertain world, as it equips organizations with the tools to anticipate challenges, identify opportunities, and make decisions that position them for long-term success. It helps organizations move beyond reactive approaches to strategic planning and encourages them to proactively shape their own futures. Content could include anticipating change, scenario planning & building, environmental scanning, weak signals, uncertainty management, long-term thinking, innovation strategy, risk mitigation, adaptability, and cross-disciplinary approaches.
