helloFUTURE develops innovative futurist programs for companies internationally. We bring your entire business, department, C-Suite or small team into the innovation (and disruption) conversation. From our futurist program, you’ll discover global trends and emerging market opportunities; the impact of innovations; learn to separate trends from hype; and anticipate risk management.
In your organization, whose job is it to see into the future? To look around corners and predict change? Where will your company be in 5-10 years? What will your future customer look like? How will the world have changed given the sweeping changes in technology? Our futurist programs attempt to answer these questions and others, via fun, crowdsourced, time-boxed, online and offline, far forward-thinking innovation challenges. These programs help your employees truly see the potential of your company, customers and industry into the next decade, resulting in greater employee insight, loyalty and engagement.
Using a combination of tools such as artifacts-from-the-future, signal collection, shift identification and Second Curve techniques, we will help guide your staff into envisioning and living that far future. Our programs may 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.
