This course will introduce participants to a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods that technology forecasters and futurists use when considering potential impacts that evolving, emerging and converging technologies might have on their organizations, industries and society. By challenging assumptions and working through a range of scenarios, participants will develop the knowledge and skills needed to better assess how technologies may impact their future.
