PROSPECTIVE

You can delay, but your future won’t.

AUGMNT helps organizations build Future-based Strategies and a Foresight/Prospective practice integrated and aligned with their Risk Management, Continuity, Future-Ready and Vigilance (monitoring and intelligence) programs.

PROSPECTIVE ALLOWS TO EXPLORE AND PLAN (FOR) THE FUTURE WHICH SIMPLY MEANS HAVING A FUTURE AND ENDURE IN THE FUTURE.

Why?

Foresight is this ongoing activity that allows organizations to explore possibilities, options or alternative futures, articulate scenarios, study their impacts and select the best or preferred future.

The workshops like signal detection & scenario articulation and analysis workshops can involve various participations over one or half-day meetings.

The foresight book

Our unique approach allows participants to build their prospective book as the theory and other information is delivered by simply going through and inputting their information and discovery at each step of the proposed foresight process.

Related activities

Strategy
Strategic foresight generally refers to the activity of foresight. However, foresight and strategy are two distinct activities, which is why we call them related activity.

Risks and continuity
By integrating and aligning foresight with its risk management, continuity and future readiness programs, an organization covers short, medium and long term risks and opportunities.

Foresight watch/vigil
Foresight watch, vigil or monitoring is this continuous activity which allows an organization to scan its environment in order to remain on the lookout for risks and opportunities, trends and signals. It is carried out internally by the organization or externally*

* Vigilance is a support service for the development of a monitoring program (internal or external) restricted to foresight or more extended to include broader risk monitoring. The external program is built taking into account the specific needs of the organization.
