Futures & Foresight, a webinar with Dave Snowden & Wendy Schultz

£20 £20

SKU: WEBINAR_FuturesForesight Category:


This webinar is not about forecasting (where you attempt to predict the future or backcasting? where you imagine an ideal future and trace your steps backwards) but about sidecasting and anticipatory awareness and triggering.  Understanding the evolutionary potential of the here and now and identifying coherent and viable near-term actions that increase resilience in an increasingly uncertain future. ..

Dave Snowden will cover methods for the development of micro-scenarios that can be used to imagine a broader range of future possibilities,  and the move from prediction to a state of awareness. This webinar’s special guest, Wendy Schulz, will elaborate on futures research and futures fluency and the role vision and goals play when your basis for action is the real present rather than the non-existent future.

Key points for this webinar:

  • Building an awareness of change happening around you, and how to identify emergent trends and weak signals
  • How to work within the current landscape of possibilities
  • What happens when we experience the future as a creative challenge
