Technology is advancing at the pace of science fiction, much faster than most people realize, and the social, economic, professional and ethical implications will be extreme. In these times of uncertainty and massive disruption Leaders´ most important failure is the failure of imagination. But it is very hard to imagine a future that is by definition unpredictable.
We might not be able to predict the future, but we can always build it. Leaders can gain competitive advantage by using creative foresight methodologies to look beyond past certainties and assumptions and consider a wider range of plausible scenarios and then apply disruptive scenario generation to critically question and define their desired scenarios. Only when we know what we want we can become main actors of the future.
This workshop is a practical introduction to the analytical frameworks of foresighting and disruptive scenarios generation, and it is intended to help the new leaders imagine in a structured way and acquire the necessary skills to make better decisions under conditions of uncertainty.
