Strategic foresight is the cornerstone of IFTF's work.

It's a set of tools, collaborative processes, custom research, and mindsets used to anticipate future possibilities and make better decisions in an ever-changing world. We use strategic foresight to help organizations, communities, and individuals:

Make smarter decisions in an uncertain world

Explore alternative futures

Build long-term resilience to change

Create opportunities for innovation

Enable positive change

Work with IFTF to make your organization future-ready.

We’ve created a portfolio of training programs, events, and partnership programs that provide the tools and techniques necessary to embrace strategic foresight, navigate large-scale change, and lead organizations toward a vibrant future.

We develop custom forecasts, maps, and futures learning experiences, including innovation and design workshops, foresight training, and immersive learning journeys. We also produce future-themed conferences that bring innovators, experts, and learners together. And we continue to develop new methods and tools informed by things yet to come.
