Transforming the Future of Industry. The role of anticipation in strategy- and policy-making
Masters&Robots / Day 2
Spurring innovation, enhancing productivity, improving public policy... all are familiar and pervasive imperatives for strategists and policy-makers throughout the world. In part these preoccupations have been inspired by the many examples of amazing achievements in terms of economic and social development as well as the discovery and transmission of knowledge. We also know that most of these attempts to design or regulate the future fall short of our expectations. The future seems evident in hindsight, but is always so different from what we anticipated. Are we doomed, like the proverbial drunk, to look for our keys under the streetlight? One alternative to being imprisoned by existing models or returning to yesterday’s ideas about the future is to transform the way the future is used.
