The Future Foresight Certification is based on a combination of methodological tools used for creative thinking, horizon scanning, idea generation, trend analysis, uncertainty tracking, weak signals detection, disruption alerts and scenario planning.
The Certification begins with an overview of basic knowledge of future foresight, including fundamentals and literacy, schools of thought and practice, as well as a comprehensive immersion into the Unstoppables. Afterwards, it covers the end-to-end Foresight process using the S4Futures framework, which encompasses four stages: Scoping, Scanning, Scenarios and Strategy. Finally, the last level of the Certification guides you to achieve the highest standard supported by personal mentoring sessions. The skillset developed throughout the Certification focuses on building foresight capabilities, questioning participants’ current assumptions, key to achieve a balance between the analytical and the intuitive mindsets as well as the creative components of the process.
The Certification is strongly anchored in understanding challenges as major growth steppingstones for the future and it focuses on evidence-based future foresight, with uncertainties at its core, preventing variables that influence the medium and long term futures to be kept on a leash by traditional ways of thinking
