WHO WE ARE

Too little information can be as disconcerting as too much. Patricia Wentworth (inverted)

BEYOND AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE! We help organizations move beyond uncertainty, reduce the risks and seize the opportunities.

BEING DIFFERENT, MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Our past at the service of your future

At AUGMNT, we’ve taken an unconventional path (law, financial planning, investment brokering management, reporting issuer management, business and trading) to the world of strategic foresight. We witnessed firsthand the importance of forward, future-thinking in navigating complex landscapes and it taught us the value of being proactive rather than reactive and how many issues and challenges could have been avoided with better foresight and planning and with an augmented sense of impacts and impacts of impacts.

How we make a difference

We understand the importance of compliance, regulatory frameworks, and risk management – factors that are crucial in developing robust foresight strategies. Our attention to detail allows us to uncover insights and trends that others might overlook. We believe that strategic foresight is the key to unlocking new possibilities, mitigating risks, and staying ahead of the competition.

Our work focuses particularly on the necessary pragmatism of the 3 horizons, the use of foresight to articulate a new business theory, on the 2 aspects of the future-readiness being (1) being prepared and (2) creating the future. Furthermore, we focus on the importance of integrating foresight with risk and continuity management programs and the use of other maturity models.

Finally, we promote an organization’s future as being exclusive, proprietary asset/strategy.
