When it comes to planning for the future, many private sector organizations rely on a forecast that predicts a single potential future, which leaves them vulnerable to disruption. In contrast, many government agencies, especially those that provide critical services, have adopted futures and foresight principles as part of their strategic planning to account for uncertainty and explore multiple potential futures.
In our upcoming webinar, we’ll discuss how private sector businesses can use these same practices and what they can learn from government agencies. Hosted by Toffler Associates CEO Maria Bothwell and featuring representatives from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), the Federal Foresight Community of Interest (FFCOI), and Toffler Associates this webinar will seek to answer critical questions on how you can begin to address future uncertainty and prepare for potential disruption.
