DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, "FUTURES THINKING AND SCENARIO PLANNING" IN MAY IS POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 2018
Futures Thinking, through Scenario Planning and other tools, enhance the capacity of policymakers to anticipate change in complex environments, surface hidden assumptions, and to uncover weaknesses and inflexibilities in their organisations. Futures Thinking plays an important role in provoking policymakers out of their comfort zones, to consider the bigger systemic context beyond their immediate domains, and to activate the imagination, at both the individual and organisational levels, so that the future is not simply an extrapolation of the present.
Given the ever-increasing disruptions that policymakers face in their various policy domains, and where complex interconnections between socio-economic, political, technological and environmental forces are poorly understood, Futures Thinking helps to sensitise organisations to fundamental surprise by rehearsing for different futures through Scenario Planning, thus deepening their agility and resilience.
The Future Ready Singapore Project team, together with global experts and practitioners, will offer a programme on Futures Thinking and Scenario Planning on 25 – 28 Sept 2018.
