To contribute to an African Society that
has mastered the art of strategic foresight.

Our Values.


Since There Are No Facts In The Future, The Work We Do Must Undergo Such Rigorous Research And Analysis To Back Up The Assertions We Make


Change Is The Only Certainty In The World, We Must Be As Creative And Imaginative As Possible In What The Future Might Look Like.


The Future Starts Today. We Must Learn, Be Bold And Have The Audacity To Imagine What The Future Could Look Like To Adequately Prepare.

Why We Exist .

We recognize that the world around us is changing faster and in more complex ways than before. The old ways of thinking and solving problems are no longer working and thus causing unprecedented uncertainty among governments, organizations, communities, and individuals. While the majority are busy working day today attempting to keep up with the changes and fighting for survival, some are groping for new answers. In order to successfully cope with these changes and have an idea of the kind of world these groups should prepare for, they need to understand their current environment and visualize future developments. They need to anticipate and understand the change in order to proactively plan for it, increase resilience, secure future competitive advantage, and successfully make critical life decisions. We, therefore, exist to help people develop the art of re-perceiving. To recognize that life will change, must change, and has changed. Old perceptions are no longer valid but new ones are possible.
