Course aims of Futures Thinking and Strategy Transformation 2030
The aim will be to engage audiences in activities, scenarios and discussions. The course focus is to enhance your ability and capacity to create alternative and preferred futures.
Professor Inayatullah and Dr Russo will work with participants of the course to build capability to anticipate major trends, challenges and opportunities facing organisations and explore critical questions:
How will futures of ageing, digital futures, artificial intelligence, and economic change affect your organisation?
What are the futures of food and what will be the impacts of technology, our changing environment and growth?
How will the increasing rate of change impact how and what you do?
Participants will be provided with in-depth and extensive coverage of strategic foresight concepts, tools and methods, along with the application of these methods to the participants’ compelling issue or action learning projects.
