What is Strategic Foresight?

Strategic Foresight is the application of the multidisciplinary theories of Futures Studies. It delves deeper, stretches wider, and envisions further into an organization’s future from which to build a more sustainable strategy complete with multiple contingency scenarios. Foresight is not about prediction. It is about preparation. Predicting a single future is ridiculous. However, there are practical methods of scouting potential and effectively using contingencies.
