Creative Futures

Workshop Overview

Format: Full day, tailored workshop
Facilitator: Lynn Allen
Dates & Cost: Negotiated

Traditional strategic planning methods have struggled with the uncertainty, complexity, speed and turbulence that define many modern work environments. Single line forecasts, predicting trend behaviour and setting KPIs that are ‘written in stone’ are increasingly ineffective ways of forecasting how the organisation may need to adapt in response to the new challenges and opportunities of the external environment.

This workshop seeks to shift the internal focus of long-term planners to a discussion about the kind of future environment into which the organisation could be heading and to an understanding of the assumptions they make about that environment.

This workshop introduces participants to scenarios, methods to enable creative exploration of the future, a framework to explore future alternative environments and methods to engage people in the process.
