Faculty and head of the Strategic Foresight Research Network at Aarhus University BSS Business School. 25 years in strategic foresight leadership: I bring future-readiness methods to decision-makers via research, seminars, workshops, in-organization engagements, and executive education.

Research

I work in the Strategic Foresight Research Network at Aarhus University Business School BSS, investigating Digital Innovation, Scenario-Learning, Industry Foresight, Design Thinking, and Board-level Future Readiness

Facilitation

I run future-think and plan workshops. We roll up our sleeves and create future-informed pathways to guide strategy and innovation to compete in markets of tomorrow. Challenge your solutions before your clients do!

Speaking

I give keynotes, briefings, masterclasses, in-company or online: high quality non-predictive foresight content, trends, disruptors, and implications: scoping, framing, challenging, and landing the ideas that matter.

Quality in Foresight

Literate. Numerate. Futurate. What is futurate? It's not prediction. Once you see complexity and VUCA for what it is, you know the very narrow limits of forecasting. What works -- the only thing that works -- is educated judgment to imaginatively but rigorously evaluate external change and its future implications. How to improve your judgment? There is a suite of tools, methods, verified by analysts and practitioners over 60 years, that leads step-by-step to a higher-quality point of view of an industry or sector's future evolution. With this, your management team, your board, your whole outfit becomes futurate. That is, future-prepared. Mentally, systemically, organizationally ready to manage uncertainty and profit from change.
