Actionable aligned view of the future
“It is better to have 10,000 people thinking about 10 trends than 10 people thinking about 10,000 trends.”
~ Pam Henderson, Ph.D
Why is Future Proofing important?
Developing a crisp, organizationally-relevant and shared view of the future informs and inspires new growth while defending against disruption and erosion
