Embracing Uncertainty: Using Strategic Foresight to Examine What's Next

The only thing constant is change; thus today’s organizations must learn to embrace ambiguity. By identifying emerging trends, we can map insights to possible future scenarios and support decision-making in the present. Our team will discuss how to incorporate futures thinking into business, so you can enable yourself and your organization to adequately prepare and proactively create strategies for the future. Come learn methodologies and the ways we’ve applied this framework into our own strategy to help build futures everyone can get behind.
