by Gereon Klein
International Journal of Foresight and Innovation Policy (IJFIP), Vol. 8, No. 4, 2012


Abstract: Field experiences on corporate foresight show predominantly a learning process to open up the mind-set for fresh thinking, visionary strategising and robust decision-making. It combines techniques of futures research with the facilitation of group processes to assemble relations, to reframe a situation, to induce action. The combination of different approaches a supporting system for implementation and the continuous readjustment of the outcomes establish individual and team learning as well as organisational development. This article presents practical cases and how in these cases, the trajectories were changed actively. Some cases are technological, others are more structural.
