Who should attend

This programme is designed for:

  • Policy analysts, researchers, managers and domain specialists who have responsibilities for long-term strategic and policy formulation for their organisations.
  • Middle and senior level managers who might be commissioners and end-users of futures products such as scenarios and horizon-scanning reports.

About the course

Instead of predicting a singular future, Futures Thinking provides decision-makers with the capabilities to develop strategies that can explore multiple future scenarios and prepare for diverse options. It aims to improve your decision-making capacity so you can contribute more fully to your organisation.

“Futures Masterclass: Foresight to Policy” will take participants through fundamental Futures Thinking frameworks and methodologies and apply them to real-world futures projects. Participants will benefit from a practice-oriented experience, bringing their real-life problems to the classroom which they will tackle with a Futures Thinking lens.

We encourage participants to attend the programme in teams to enable collaborative work on your own organisation’s Futures challenges.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the philosophical underpinnings of Futures Thinking and their importance in the policy cycle and/or organisational strategic planning
  • Learn about the Scenario Planning method, and the futures tools and frameworks that augment it such as Causal Layered Analysis, the Futures Triangle and the Futures Wheel
  • Analyse and anticipate past and future trends, uncover hidden biases and assumptions to enable thinking about the future more creatively
  • Work on your own real-world challenges with the guidance of local and international experts
  • Develop personal practice as a futures practitioner

PROGRAMME FORMAT

  • A combination of online live sessions, pre-recorded lectures, fieldwork and coaching sessions.
  • Pre-recorded lectures and pre-readings will be released one week before the live session and you may complete them at your own flexibility.

  • You may expect a total maximum commitment of 10 hours a week.
