In these volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous times, it is often difficult to predict or forecast the future. At the same time, the need to understand the future has never been greater.
Foresight exercises, such as scenarioplanning, enable companies to deal with these uncertainties and map out different plausible futures.
Foresight plays an important role in challenging organisations to step out of their comfort zone in order to make the right transformation decisions.
