Futures
Have a business challenge?

Futuring offers our clients both a strategic and creative process to anticipate and plan for the long-term. We help clients narrow down what is possible to what is plausible, and ultimately identify probable futures that can inform present day decisions.

Reinventing the Future

Futures in 1 Hour (F1H), is a guided activity for anyone who wants to learn how to think like a futurist. The tool is designed to teach the basics of futures thinking. F1H demonstrates how futures can be used to ignite critical thinking, storytelling and creativity to make better long-term business decisions, and engage with others to create better tomorrows.
