Combining the discipline of horizon scanning with social computing technology to help your organisation plan for the future

Anticipating and preparing for future challenges, trends and opportunities is always an essential component of any organisation’s strategy but, recently, in these times of economic instability and unpredictability, this task seems all the more important and it should be at the top of every leader’s list.

Horizon Scanning is defined by the Government Office for Science as:
‘the systematic examination of potential threats, opportunities and likely future developments, including (but not restricted to) those at the margins of current thinking and planning’ and may explore novel and unexpected issues as well as persistent problems or trends.

Now, with the advent of social computing technology, this traditional discipline takes on a new authority.
In this webinar, one of the world’s leading experts in of horizon scanning, Dr Michael Jackson, and one of the world’s leading experts in advanced social computing, Professor Dave Snowden, will come together to explain how these two disciplines can work together to help organisations plan for the future and protect themselves against unexpected threats.

In this talking heads format, bringing to bear their experience of working with three UK government ministries, your webinar leaders will present key examples of the use of horizon scanning combined with social computing in large organisations.

So, when the webinar has concluded, you will be able to take away ideas for using horizon scanning with social computing technology in your own organisation to protect against future uncertainty and exploit upcoming opportunities.
