Competencies: Leadership (Behavioral), People (Technical) | Intended Audience: Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
Dr. Austin will lead the participants through a dynamic foresight process that captures all the benefits of current strategic foresight techniques but in addition leaves participants with output that can be quickly modified to shift as the world shifts 

Repeated from Monday at 3:30pm

What if everyone in your organization could anticipate shifts in trends and embrace uncertainty? Strategic foresight can create that capability. In this session, participants will learn a technique for creating dynamic future scenarios that seamlessly connect strategic thinking training with real strategic planning processes and do so in a way that adapts as the world shifts around their organization. As a bonus, participants leave with a richer understanding of the future of human resource management.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the core uncertainties facing your industry and have a process for mapping how those uncertainties interact.
  • Stress test short-term initiatives against a range of 'what if' scenarios and identify blindspots in short-term strategies.
  • Lead conversations with leaders in your organization about the importance of developing strategic foresight skills.
