Example Course Outline

Tools utilized during the program to develop a suite of scenarios.

Modules One and Two: Welcome and Discover
Meet your cohort and acquaint yourself with the project topic that will be used during the program. Through an introduction to foresight, learn the fundamental ideas in the field, and the importance of employing Natural Foresight® principles and tools to thrive in a complex world. Dive into tools within the Discover facet to uncover personal and collective assumptions to recognize new disruptors on the horizon of business and society.

Modules Three and Four: Explore and Map
Jump into the Explore facet to move from traditional trend identification to futures intelligence and pattern development. Leverage your insights to develop short-, mid-, and long-term implications. In the Map facet, learn an introduction to scenario development to transform your insights into worlds that will invite “stakeholders” to suspend disbelief.

Modules Five and Six: Map and Create
Each team will use a plug-and-play tool to scaffold their scenarios and report out to the larger cohort. The Map facet will culminate in learning scenario planning tools to inform our present-day decision making. To conclude the experience, each individual will put the Create facet into practice by developing a personalized implementation plan while exchanging feedback with their peers.
