. . . information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, and wisdom is not foresight. Each grows out of the other and we need them all.
— Arthur C. Clarke, novelist

Foresight is a disciplined process of understanding what the world will look like in a defined time horizon. We work with a leading research university to define visions of the future world and understand how that will impact the decisions we need to make now. We can make that expertise available to you.

Question

We start with a question: what do we need to know? Foresight exists to inform decisions and actions, rather than for its own sake.

Knowledge

What do we know about the present and how might that present change over time? Most foresight extends current knowledge.

Wisdom

Wisdom comes from combining knowledge in new ways or in understanding what shocks may hit your system or your market; what will change look like?

Foresight

Foresight offers a compelling view of a plausible future reality to which you will need to adjust. It offers a challenge to your assumptions that the future will be like the present.
