Whats covered in this Skillgym?

Spot the key trends, anticipate what's coming, and prepare for the future. Futures thinking is not about predicting the future - it's about understanding the driving forces that will shape the years ahead, and preparing yourself and your team to thrive in whatever future you arrive in.

In this bootcamp, you'll learn how to use the core skills of a Futures Thinker to identify the key trends affecting your industry and ecosystem, plot the scenarios that are most likely to arise, and decide on the key actions you can take now to get ready for the future. You'll leave with a new set of skills and tools to apply in your workplace, having taken your first step towards becoming a Futures Thinker.

Is this program for me?

Futures Thinking for Innovators is the right learning experience for you if you're:

🚀 A designer or innovator who wants to enrich your practice with a new methodology to complement skills like design thinking and systems thinking.

🔭  A team or organisational leader who wants to understand the future of work and innovation for your people and your industry.

💡 A consultant or facilitator who wants to help your clients to anticipate and prepare for key future scenarios.

😳 Anxious about the uncertainty and ambiguity of the future of work, and looking for concrete steps you can take towards thriving in the years ahead.

Our learning style is fast-paced, hands-on and immersive. You'll be applying new skills and mindsets throughout the bootcamp, and you'll walk away with a set of new tools to use in your design and innovation work.

What you'll learn

⚡️ Spotting and prioritising the key trends

You'll learn to spot the driving forces both globally and locally that will shape the future of your industry and ecosystems. Tools like PESTLE analysis will help you to build a rich picture of your future context.

⚡️ Critical uncertainties and scenario planning

You'll identify the big questions that will have the greatest impact on your work, and map out the four most likely scenarios in order to gain a rich picture of what might lie ahead of you.

⚡️ Deciding on wise next steps

You'll discover how to navigate complexity by taking strategic action now, using your foresight to prepare yourself and your team to thrive.
