Writing about strategic foresight in plain language was certainly more difficult than I expected. However, I finally feel like I can write my foresight book. I have a topic, and at least five of the chapters will be based in large part on these articles–without all the disaster preparedness stuff of course. However, that book is also in the works.

In the second article, I introduced horizon scanning as the most basic method of gathering information for strategic foresight.

In this article, I discuss the concept of the world as a complex system, touching on the fields of Systems and Chaos Theory.
