Futures, Strategic Design & Innovation

The program driving force is to help people in organisations to improve te way they face uncertain and turbulent contexts. We will help you develop the capacity to anticipate trends and explore scenarios and how this can improve your approach to strategy and innovation processes.

For 4 days, participants will have the opportunity to explore the most cutting-edge concepts and tools in the fields of foresight, strategic design and innovation, integrated in a unique Futures Framework.

Participants will have firsthand access to the "SCANNING, SENSING AND ACTING" Framework, used to anticipate and explore the future, identify new opportunities and build innovative strategies to solve strategic challenges.
