Imagine being able to derive plausible future scenarios. Imagine using that knowledge to make decisions that can influence the future you want for your organization, your industry, and even your country.
You can do just that. At this workshop, you will learn about tools and methods that will help you identify future scenarios, analyze the impacts of those futures, and make appropriate decisions today.
This virtual training workshop is scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays over a three-week period. Dr. Peter Bishop will lead you through a program based on the Certificate in Strategic Foresight offered by the University of Houston.
A balanced approach of presentations, discussions, and practical application will be used throughout the workshop.
Dr. Peter Bishop is a distinguished foresight professional with extensive experience in teaching and consulting in the field. He has run versions of this program for several sections of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, as well as for Health Canada and Policy Horizons Canada. Dr. Bishop has recently published a textbook on the field with Dr. Andy Hines, Teaching About the Future: The Basics of Foresight Education.
This workshop is scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays over a three-week period for a total of 6 sessions. Each session is 3 hours long, including a half hour lunch break, and held between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
“As we were reminded in the workshop, one can’t safely drive a car using only the rear-view mirror. In a business environment that feels like it is evolving at warp speed, it’s so important to look out for what may be ahead. As I don’t have the luxury of a crystal ball, it was fantastic to learn a simple yet effective approach to gaining a broader view of the future. I highly recommend this program to anyone who has to either make or support decisions about the future.”

“The Strategic Foresight Workshop blended the best of theory and experiential training for risk professionals. Even though the methods used in the workshop are quite common, it is how they are combined together that gives you the best results.”
