LongView Consult is a Kenya-based consulting firm that conducts research and policy analysis on topical socio-economic and political issues from a foresight perspective. We look at past and current trends, and consider – in a volatile, uncertain, complex, changing and ambiguous environment – possible futures that can and should be planned for. Using this knowledge, we help communities, organizations, and governments think strategically about how to prepare for those eventualities. We do this through a variety of methods, including trends analysis, horizon scanning, systems mapping and scenarios building.
Longview was incorporated in 2015. We work primarily in Africa on African issues. As the first firm to fully specialize in foresight in Kenya, we have set ourselves up as fore thinkers in a variety of key arenas.
FuturingThrough various foresight techniques like brainstorming, systems analysis, futures wheels and scenarios building, we build understanding on why certain trends are occurring and establish their future implications. We then construct possible outcomes with the eventual aim of changing the course of future history.
