Re-evaluation & Reinvention:
Keys to Success in the Coming Decade
Imagine three "time horizons" unfolding before you. The near horizon is about the here and now—a time for tactical execution. A few years out is the middle horizon, where strategic planning happens; long-range planning takes place at the far horizon. The Three Horizons framework is a simple, powerful model that makes strategic planning more effective by picturing the future as a dynamic process of continuous change on multiple time scales.
Here at IFTF, we've spent the last few years exploring just what it means to be a future-ready organization, and the Three Horizons framework was a vital component of that process. In this short video from our Annual Ten-Year Forecast event, IFTF Vantage Program Co-director Rod Falcon explains how the framework can help organizations, teams, and leaders navigate a world of accelerating change.
To experience the Three Horizons framework and other future-readiness tools, download IFTF's Playbook for Future-Readiness: a collection of strategies, tips, and tactics derived from interviews with foresight experts and practitioners from around the world.
IFTF Vantage 2022: The Decisive Decade
The world is currently facing a period of incredible short-term adaptation coupled with long-term uncertainty: the climate crisis, an ongoing pandemic, organizational and geopolitical instability, and calls to address long-standing systemic inequities.
In the next ten years, we will see a radical reshaping of the global landscape—one that will require us to radically rethink everything we've previously relied on to cope with these issues. The questions are simple: Will we address them? Or will we become their victims?
The IFTF Vantage team has been re-evaluating and rethinking everything an organization relies on, from business models and metrics to incentives, technology, and workplaces. For a topic so vast, we sought to find ways to make the research and its implications manageable and valuable. The result? A set of thematic forecasts that provide structure for sustained and equitable growth as we enter this dynamic, decisive decade.
