OpenFutures – an Operating system for Future Centers

In May 2006, fourteen innovation experts started a unique two-year exploration tour in which they explored Future Centers and other future-oriented collaborative working environments. They visited, experienced, analyzed and prototyped over thirty Future Centers in the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, the United Kingdom, Italy, Israel, and elsewhere.

The explorers were part of the OpenFutures project, which was funded by the European Commission. They were drawn from a broad range of backgrounds, including the research and development of innovation methods and spaces, theoretical and scientific research, societal and business entrepreneurship, and the actual planning and management of Future Centers.

This book OpenFutures – an Operating System for Future Centers summarizes their findings. It provides insights into why Future Centers are set up, what their fundamental operating principles are, how they are planned, run, and managed, and how they create impact. The insights, stories, knowledge recipes and recommended tips are organized across four perspectives: the organizational, methodological, physical, and technological. It is a highly visual document, with artwork created especially for the book to enrich and underscore the presentation of the many different concepts that make up the art and practice of Future Centers.
The book is a useful resource for people planning to launch a Future Center or other type of innovation laboratory, for people who currently operate one and want to renew and transform it, or simply for those intent on adding a touch of 'future orientation' to their everyday working environments.
