Why is strategic foresight essential in a 21st century organizations?
What is it about ?
Foresight is both a process of thinking about the future and methodologies for exploring possible futures. It aims to prepare collective actions (policies, strategies, decisions) by integrating long-term issues.
Foresight uses collective intelligence and a variety of proven tools in a structured way. It also harnesses the power of imagination.
Why is it essential ?
In a world where the word future seems to be synonymous with the word uncertainty, how can we build action, how can an institution or a think tank give a direction? Strategic foresight gives plausible and chosen axes of development.
Foresight also allows to create the conditions for a common, participative reflection and therefore for decisions that are acceptable and accepted.
Foresight reflection engages the individuals who participate to it, and propagates a pro-active future mindset and more confident state of mind.
Foresight can help to explain a new strategy.
Finally, telling the future can help to shape it.
