We developed a powerful and flexible strategic foresight framework for organisations to think and act on the future: SCANNING, SENSING AND ACTING ©.
Anticipate Trends, face Uncertainties, build future Scenarios and use this to improve your approach to Strategy and Innovation.
SCANNING: Recognize key drivers of change and use them to be better prepared for future challenges and new opportunities.
SENSING: Build and explore scenarios for the future, combining them with tools of strategic design and innovation.
ACTING: Build responses to alternative scenarios, identify areas of growth, and design new business models.
This framework includes the building of a Scanning Dashboard with all the driving forces of change (megatrends, weak signals, wild cards and uncertainties), the sense making of those drivers through foresight tools and methods (scenarios and systems maps), and the capability of translating and using all that knowledge and insights into the strategy and innovation processes of the company (innovation labs, strategic design tools or new business modelling).
This framework is the backbone of our consulting projects and also the way we design executive programs.
