Governments and corporations face extraordinary disruption, fueled by rapid and seemingly constant change. The need to adapt can seem constant, too, inducing change fatigue throughout an organization.

By starting with the future first, Toffler Associates helps you drive change without the fatigue. Our Future Proof® strategy development considers your organization’s unique responsibilities and value proposition within a framework of the larger forces driving change. We then “backcast” from the future to identify opportunities for your long-term viability. Together, we use futures and foresight to develop strategies that make sense for your organization, align to overarching leadership goals, proactively contend with roadblocks, and assert your organization’s value in an increasingly complex and crowded marketplace.
