  9. 9. Strategic Foresight Remember, foresight is a normal capacity of the human mind. In organisations, the challenge is to take it from being an implicit unconscious process taking place in a single mind to being an explicit conscious process taking place in many minds. In other words, from implicit & unconscious to explicit & conscious and from individual to collective.
  10. 10. Collaborative, Open Foresight "Open Foresight is a process for analysing complex issues in an open and collaborative way, and to raise the bar on public discourse and forward- focused critical thinking. It draws on well-established methodologies from the Futures Studies field, principles from design thinking, and visual communication tools to create a framework for building forecasts and scenarios." - From the Future of Facebook project
