Harmonic Circles: a new futures tool
Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to introduce a futures tool developed by Marcus Anthony called Harmonic Circles. Design/methodology/approach ‐ The paper introduces a new futures tool, using a personal example. There is a description of the tool itself and its purposes. An example from the author's own research is used to demonstrate one potential way of implementing Harmonic Circles. Some appropriate and inappropriate applications of Harmonic Circles are then outlined, as well as possible problems. Findings ‐ The paper finds that Harmonic Circles can be used by futurists in a number of specific settings, especially to detach from confrontational binaries. Originality/value ‐ The paper presents a new introspective tool, compatible with critical and postconventional futures.
