  • Futurists scan for different types of trends in the STEEP categories (= Society, Technology, Economic, Environmental, Political). This is the raw material for developing scenarios about the future, some of which are more plausible, some less plausible, more desirable and less desirable. The sweet spot is a combination of plausible and desirable, and the goal is to help prepare for that future.
