Foresight Resources for Post-Pandemic Planning

post-covid pandemic planning

Foresight can help you plan next steps

We believe that the power to alter the course of your future is always in your hands. 

This can be difficult to see in a crisis. Strategic foresight can help organizations reclaim equilibrium: 

  • Learn new ways to see the situation and develop options for action
  • Anticipate the consequences of change
  • Use disruption to advance new changes
  • Develop resilience

Near-term Planning Resources


Prepare your Mindset

Evolutionary psychologists explain that in a crisis, people’s focus narrows, making it difficult to see the big picture. Futurists use specific thinking techniques to help remedy that tendency.  Get started by downloading Think Like a Futurist, a guide to ‘loosening up’ that focus, so you can approach next-steps planning in a more limber and agile state.
