Adaptive Strategy

Foresight is the overarching term used for identifying and understanding alternative futures.

It has been defined as “a systematic, participatory, future-intelligence-gatheringand medium-to-long-term vision-building process aimed at enabling present-daydecisions and mobilizing joint action.” Foresight empowers decision makers and policyplanners to use new ways of thinking about, talking about, and implementing strategic plans thatare compatible with the unfolding future.
