Systematic Foresight to Guide Sustainable Decision-Making

Ensure sustainable, long-term planning with systematic horizon scanning and foresight

How to ensure you have all relevant future changes in sight?

Continuity requires a comprehensive view of any emerging changes. It is vital for an organisation’s resilience that there is an understanding of upcoming changes and inter-dependencies of different events. Here at Futures Platform, we help organisations implement systematic futures thinking in their strategic planning in order to increase sustainability and guide investment in a smart way.

How to create a foresight program quickly and easily?

Foresight activities can take a lot of time and resources. With our tool, foresight activities become effortless and engaging. We help our customers to get started and guide them through using our tool effectively for projects as well as continuous programmes.

How to use relevant and validated future knowledge?

Trusted and relevant knowledge on the future can be difficult to find. Our team of futurists and foresight analysts are constantly scanning the global landscape for emerging issues, megatrends, signals and developments. Awareness of the connections and cross-impacts between phenomena supports well-educated decisions and creates social sustainability in scale.


Setting up a foresight programme in a government department

When Dr. Yousif Rashid Matar Al Zaabi decided to set up a foresight function for his government department, he wanted to invite external stakeholders also to take part. But how to get them interested, and how to coordinate such a large-scale group effort? The answer was Futures Platform, in which the healthcare professionals of the entire emirate of Abu Dhabi joined forces to work on foresight and build a vision of the future.
