Applying Strategic Foresight to Organisational Change

Thursday 18 October 2007

Does your organisation suffer what Futurists call 'Operational Sleepwalking'? That most organisations (and people) willingly sleepwalk their way into their futures is not all that surprising. What is surprising about that however is that those people and those organisations are: * Surprised when something unexpected (and not to their liking) happens and, * Claim they had no alternative Tackling this all too pervasive mindset Strategic Futurist Marcus Barber will be presenting at the Centre for Organisational Development OD Professionals Network on the 24th of October, looking at how Organisational Development, HR and Learning & Teaching Managers can leverage Strategic Foresight to assist their organisations. The link to the evening can be found at the website where you can also register for the event - www.cfod.com.au. A summary of the evening follows here:

The role of a Strategic Futurist is to wake the organisation out of its slumber so that it can make better operational choices for the future.  Strategic foresight is at its core, the act of Organisational Development for emerging operational needs.  Where typical planning and learning and development is focused on improving existing skill sets, Future Studies nudges the focus into the space where the organisation can begin to prepare BEFORE a skill set is required.  Strategic Foresight can play a key part of leading an Organisational Development Framework.

The session will introduce you to some of the key concepts of Strategic Futures and their use in developing capabilities for organisations and individuals.  You'll be offered a clear choice - continue sleepwalking into the future and deal with the 'nasty surprises' or set your own alarm clock so that your organisation is ready ahead of when the challenge hits!

Strategic Planning for the Future of Insurance
Thursday 1 March 2018
One of the most 'futures' orientated industries in the world is the Insurance sector. Few sectors have such a deliberate and ongoing look at emerging issues the way the Insurance Sector does, with perhaps only the high end security sector paying more attention on a daily basis. Last week I conducted an advanced Strategic Planning Session with Resilium Insurance looking at emerging customer issues and challenges
