About The Futures School:
The Futures School is a global development platform whose mission is to democratize foresight. Through learning events, professional certification and other growth opportunities, TFS empowers individuals, institutions, organizations, and governments to adopt foresight as their 21st century operating system. Strategic Foresight is a practice that allows us to create functional views of alternative futures and possibilities. Through this process we are better prepared for potential threats and are able to capitalize on hidden opportunities. While no one can predict the future, foresight allows us to mine the external environment for trends and leverage those insights to create maps of the emerging landscape. These well informed maps of the future allow us to test our current strategy, develop breakthrough innovations and create transformative change. TFS programs are hands-on, interactive and project-based with participants collaborating with peers from outside their industry and subject matter expertise. The training includes tools and models as well as reusable templates.
