Future Ideas - Anticipating and influencing the future

  1. 1. Scanning is the process of looking for the signs of change in the world. No matter how minor they are, we need to consider what the world be like if that change were to become significant GIVEN THE ORDINARY, OPERATIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES WE HAVE, IT IS HARD TO KEEP UP WITH CHANGES GOING ON IN THE WORLD THAT WILL IMPACT OUR CAREERS OR ENTERPRISES
  2. 2. We cannot predict the future, but we can still practice adapting to change by seriously considering a range of plausible futures that will change the context of our careers and enterprises SURPRISING DEVELOPMENTS OFTEN COME UPON US SUDDENLY SO WE ARE UNPREPARED TO CAPITALIZE ON THEM OR DEFEND AGAINST THEM
  3. 3. Most of us influence the future by taking small, reasonable steps in the direction of an overall vision for a long period of time MOST PEOPLE’S JOB IS TO CREATE A BETTER THE FUTURE THAN THE ONE THAT WOULD HAPPEN WITHOUT THEIR INTERVENTION, BUT WE ARE OFTEN UNSURE ABOUT HOW TO ACT TO CREATE THAT CHANGE
