Thinking futures

Strategy at the Edge of Complexity and Uncertainty
Thinking about the unthinkable
Over het boek

Today's society is facing challenges of an unprecedented global scale. Economic shifts, ageing population, migration flows and climate change - to name only a few - will provide both new problems and new opportunities. Analyses, instruments and methods that were used in the past to prepare for the future no longer work. How can decision-makers and policy-makers cope with all this?

This book offers insight into a new approach. 'Future(s) thinking' is a powerful and research-based method of interpreting an unpredictable, changing and complex environment. It can be applied in a range of domains, from political policy and business strategy to innovation and entrepreneurship. In all of these domains, the disciplined application of future thinking can offer a distinct and sustainable competitive advantage.

Thinking Futures is a valuable guide for anyone concerned for our future: from politicians to CEOs, from policy-makers to youngsters and from diplomats to intelligence service directors.
