Futurist Programs

binocularshelloFUTURE develops fun, crowdsourced futurist programs, bringing your entire company, department or team into the innovation (and disruption) conversation.

Whose job is it in your organization to look into the far future? Whose job is it to look out 5-10 years and determine where your company will be, where the world will be and where your customers will be?

Our futurist programs are fun, time-boxed, online and offline far forward thinking innovation challenges which help your employees to truly envision the future of your company, customers, and industry, resulting in greater insight and employee engagement. The programs can be rightsized everywhere from small workshops to the department level, to the entire enterprise.

Using a combination of tools such as artifacts-from-the-future, signal collection, shift identification and Second Curve techniques, we will help guide your people into envisioning and living that far future. Our programs can include pre-planning, capture tool setup, reward definition, parameter definition, internal marketing, artifact generation, idea submission and review, pre-storms, program guidance, idea review, and execution.
