FUTURECASTING
 
Futurecasting is a tool to sensitize church leaders to external and emerging issues before they are overwhelmed by them and to provide leaders with a process for sorting through a myriad of challenges and opportunities to clarify strategic direction.

    Leading from the future

    Futurecasting provokes innovative approaches to strategy through the application of foresight methodologies. Foresight is the ability to anticipate what could happen before it happens and then identifying the arising opportunities for innovation. The goal is not to predict the future but to provoke bold creativity. When leaders mentally position themselves ten or more years into the future, they gain new perspective on the present, enriching their strategic thinking capabilities and enabling them to lead from the future.
