⚡️ ⚡️ Template release: Three Strategic Foresight templates to reimagine the future
Do you ever find yourself asking, “there’s got to be a better way to do X,” or after solving a problem you hear the pushback, “but this is the way it’s always been done”?
If so, then you’ll find these templates useful. 🔥
People are natural sense-makers. We filter information and form conclusions based on previously held beliefs. In doing so, we often miss the disruptors coming at us, or ignore the potential problems and solutions that would be worth exploring. Peter Ho coined the term “black elephant” to describe this phenomenon as a problem that is actually visible to everyone but no one wants to deal with it (a combination of the two metaphors “the elephant in the room” and “the black swan”). 🐘
These three templates help users practice a foundational principle of Strategic Foresight, which is to look from the outside-in. By helping us to think about the future more consciously and strategically, these tools become powerful aids to our everyday decision-making. You may use the templates as a set or individually and each of them are flexible for a multitude of use-cases.
In collaboration with The Futures School, we offer three new templates to innovate, strategize, communicate, organize, and inspire through the future! ✨
