An integrated view of foresight: integrated foresight management model
The use of foresight as a tool in policy and strategic decision making increased especially in the last decade of the twentieth century in order to enhance competitiveness and innovation of nations, regions, corporations and even individuals. Coupled with this development a lot of different
definitions which partly include part of the others emerged in the literature. However, it was observed that none of these definitions were capable enough to represent an integrated and holistic view about the impact of foresight on the management of the future. In this article, the integrated
foresight management model is introduced which is based on the integrated management model but enriched by a knowledge-people-system-organisation framework. The current list of definitions was tabulated in this new model and the vacancies in the model were filled out. This integrated foresight
management model can help practitioners in designing national, regional or corporate programs in developing necessary organisational structures, deliverables and behaviours on policy, strategy and operational levels of management.
