In today’s rapidly evolving world, organizations need to be forward-looking and embrace change as a constant. Traditional methods like strategic planning alone are no longer sufficient to stay competitive. Foresight is an emerging discipline that empowers leaders to use multiple futures to drive critical decisions in the present.

Gayle Lantz speaks with Dr. Gabriele Rizzo, a prominent foresight executive, bestselling author, and one of the world’s 30 UNESCO Chairs in Futures Studies and Foresight. With over 15 years of experience leading sophisticated foresight for organizations like the US Space Force, NATO, and the United Nations, Dr. Rizzo offers a unique perspective on navigating uncertainty and unlocking new possibilities.

This episode covers:

  • Understanding the core principles and value of foresight 
  • How foresight differs from prediction and traditional planning methods (including why many SWOT analyses fall short)
  • Using “multiple futures” as a construct to ask new questions and expand thinking
  • Developing foresight capabilities within an organization
  • Leveraging foresight for strategic competitive advantage, innovation, and organizational resilience
  • Overcoming common mindset barriers that limit an organization’s future potential
  • Practical steps leaders can take to introduce foresight concepts and foster a forward-looking culture

After this insightful conversation, you’ll be inspired to look beyond the constraints of the present and empower your organization to embrace the power of foresight in shaping its future success.
