Super Seminar Season 02 / Episode 01 looks into Futures & Foresight practices, an existentially vital form of sense-making. Translating trends, analytic research, ethnographic studies, desk analysis, these practices are in wide use amongst forward-thinking R&D and Innovation teams looking to anticipate and prepare for the contingencies of kinetic, complicated, conflicted and chaotic domains.

Join in a discussion with experienced practitioners as they help you understand how commercial organizations, public institutions, and governments use futures-oriented tools and practices to help prepare for change, manage the kinetics of challenging market dynamics; make sense of emerging trends; assess the implications of Social, Technological, Economic, Environmental, and Political dimensions and domains.

What are these tools for making sense of the future? How are they used to make the future sensical? How do you translate foresight into vision, inspiration and innovation? Who is able to help do this kind of future-facing speculation and what does it take to introduce the practice into your organization?

SuperSeminar S02E01 gives you the opportunity to not only learn from experienced practitioners, but engage in a discussion, create professional connections, and learn how you can develop the kinds of skills and the mindset to adopt unique insights into change.

What will we cover?

As you can now tell, SuperSeminar Season 02 is focussed exclusively on Futures & Foresight practices. In Episode 02 we continue hearing from active practitioners bringing a futures-oriented mindset and set of methodologies into the world’s largest organizations.

Come hear how Foresight brings Insight, Imagination, and Inspiration to the Rational, Analytic, Structured organization of logic-based decision making of the corporate consciousness. This is a vital skill that is becoming more integral to Structure. Futures-oriented practices, Imagination, Insight augments the ability of systems steered by decisio nmakers to aid in the sense-making of weak signals, identifable trends, as well as social, political, technological, and cultural evolutionary behaviors. These are representations of an emergence — and emergence of the adjacent possible, the plausible, and the not true *yet.

Come to Season 02 to learn how they use analytical research, ethnographic investigations within their own progressive Research and Development and Innovation teams to help anticipate, forecast and prepare their senior leadership for the uncertainties of dynamic, complex, contentious, and tumultuous contexts.

Bringing imagination, creative thinking, a generalists sensibility to the rational decision making of organizations and similar structures is an existentially vital form of sense-making. Here in SuperSeminar we learn to appreciate the value of a rich meaningful collaboration between the creative and the analytic/rational parts of our human decision-making apparatus.

Join in a discussion with experienced practitioners as they help you understand how commercial organizations, public institutions, and governments use futures-oriented tools and practices to help prepare for change, manage the kinetics of challenging market dynamics; make sense of emerging trends; assess the implications of Social, Technological, Economic, Environmental, and Political dimensions and domains.
