In today’s world, being able to anticipate change can mean the difference between success and survival. A foresight professional can help you steer your organization through the waves of sudden change by providing the knowledge and the know-how to look beyond the horizon, helping the organization to see beyond their immediate environment, making the surprising seem like “not a big deal.” Can we predict the future? Absolutely not. Foresight consultants can, however, help your company understand what is possible, plausible, and preferable.

Environmental Scanning

Your organization knows what it does, and understands the immediate environment. An environmental scan can provide your company with the latest information about the global environment—the social, technological, political, environmental, and economic changes that can affect your organization.

Scenario Development

While we cannot predict the future, we can paint a picture of what the future may bring.  These scenarios are based on what is expected to happen, the assumptions and uncertainties that are associated with the expected, and the probabilities and impacts if those assumptions prove incorrect.  The benefits of using scenarios is to get leadership to think about the world in different ways.  That exercise alone can improve organizational decision-making.  Beyond the scenarios themselves, I can play active role in STEERING your organization toward your preferred scenario. There is no such thing as utopia, and it is important that companies understand the advantages and drawbacks of their preferred future, and work to minimize the difficulties while accentuating the positive aspects of that preferred future.

Strategic Planning

I can help you develop a strategic plan for your company. I will work with you to make a living document, not just a large binder that will collect dust once completed. This is a process that requires as much involvement from the organization as it does the consultant.  Often the benefit of strategic planning is not in the document, but in the thought processes that go into developing the product.


I will work with everyone in your organization to develop a mission and vision for your company. The mission is the core statement for your company’s operations. The vision is the dream or image that your company drives for.  Put differently, the mission comes from the brain, but the vision comes from the heart.
