Success in the future depends not on the
study of the future but on the future success of
decisions taken today…
-Angela Wilkinson, Oxford University
Through Socio-economic research and policy analysis, we build past and present knowledge in key areas.
Through 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.
We base our organizational strategy and development work on the principle of planning from the future to the present using strategic foresight methodologies such as back casting.
We enable learning, unlearning and relearning through facilitating brainstorming sessions and through project reviews and evaluations. We also publicly share knowledge products among key stakeholders through presentations, trainings and outreach.
We use the International Futures (IFs) model which is a data analytics tools Longview Consult uses to enable long- term data analysis, forecasting, and scenario building to facilitate thinking, analysis and strategic action.
