Foresight workshops ordinarily take the form of games, but not because their outcomes are not serious. Foresight is a creative tool, not an analytical one because there are no facts and numbers about the future. A form of the game also helps unleash a team's creativity. It is an exciting event, always accompanied by vivid emotions. By the way, it is a good instrument for team building, though it was not tailored for this purpose.
Participation in a foresight game helps team members envision and embrace possible future changes, break out from their daily routine and start thinking strategically. And tools such as Emerging Issues Analysis allow them to spot the almost invisible today's signs of massive future changes, things that are now at the beginning of the S-curve. That paves the road for innovations, game-changing business models, and products.
I have conducted a number of foresight games, and invaluable insights emerged during each of them. If you would like to look into your industry's future, reinforce your team's creativity, and receive many ideas for your business development, organize a foresight game for your team.
