Prospective softwares and toolbox

Seven Problems, seven Tools


Although strategic foresight is an intellectual “non-discipline” it nevertheless requires rigor and formalization, which clarify action and lead towards desired futures.

The toolbox allows the strategist to ask the right questions and reduce incoherencies and uncertainties.
Strategic foresight is an art that requires talents like intuition, unconventional thinking, and common sense.
