Above all, strategic foresight creates a competitive advantage in an ever-changing business environment. Companies that use foresight and make decisions based on it, shape their business and environment to their own benefit. Strategic foresight is an approach with practical tools for creating a sustainable strategy.
The program teaches you how to use foresight tools and apply them in strategy work and business. It also presents scenario work as a part of foresight.
After completing the program, you will be able to approach strategy work through foresight and build a strategy from the vision up.
