You Have A Choice: Using Strategic Foresight To Lead Your Organization Into The Future
Source: Regent University
You have a choice is a statement many of us have heard. This statement prompts forward thinking about the consequences of a decision. It sounds a warning, not unlike a small-town firehouse of old, blasting a siren to call the firemen to service. Wise leaders also learn how to hear warning sirens from the environment, giving them an opportunity to act before it is too late. This is called strategic foresight. Foresight allows preemptive employment of resources to mitigate problems on the horizon. It serves as a means to transform hopes for a better future into reality.
