Environmental scanning is the lifeblood of Strategic Foresight, but getting started can feel like information overload!

This helpful resource includes two easy to understand Futures Intelligence frameworks- one to structure what to scan around (STEEP), and the other to structure implications (Point of Impact Questions). These two frameworks operate together for robust environmental scanning.

Also included is a desktop wallpaper as a convenient reminder of the two frameworks.
