Abstract:

In this paper, some of the most important results of the recent work of the author's Futures Observatory, the culmination of a decade of global research involving several thousand managers and professionals from large organisations, are explored in the context of the long-range planning undertaken by larger organisations, especially governments, which can positively influence their environments. A range of research techniques has been developed to allow them to identify possible futures and - where possible - to manipulate them. The paper also includes a summary of the fundamental concepts underpinning the work and of the evidence which validates this.
