Future Fit Playbook | Leading Minds Lab

The future holds tremendous potential, but it can also be a place of uncertainty and trepidation.To help you find a way through disruption, we are sharing the plays that Leading Minds uses to anticipate and take charge of change. 

Our Futures playbook is a set of plays, tools, and processes designed to explore and make sense of potential futures. Using strategic foresight frameworks and theories, these plays will help you categorize different drivers of change, identify their impacts and implications, and ultimately take action to future-proof your organization.

The plays are versatile and can be adapted to your needs, whether you’re working as a team or in a workshop setting. They fall into five categories, each with unique ways of thinking and approaching change. By following this process, you’ll be better equipped to navigate the uncertain future and become Future-Fit.

What is Strategic Foresight?

Strategic foresight is a process that involves identifying and analyzing potential future scenarios, trends, and signals of change, in order to anticipate and prepare for them. It involves thinking critically about the future, questioning assumptions and biases, and exploring a range of possible outcomes. 

The goal of a strategic foresight process is to develop insights and strategies that can help leaders and organizations be proactive and agile in the face of uncertainty. It is an important tool for anyone seeking to navigate a complex and rapidly evolving environment.
