You will find some information here about the site content and how to find your way around the site here. Your access to the content depends on whether you have a free or paid membership subscription.

The top navigation menu gives you more general information about the site and details of coming online events, a list of categories (this page), the page where you can download your free resources (paid subscribers), the privacy policy and a contact page. The post categories can be found in the sidebar on the homepage.

This post lets you know about how I categorise my posts.

Site Focus

The focus is finding and using your foresight in applied futures processes. Foresight is our cognitive capacity to imagine possible futures. Futures Studies is the field in which we apply our foresight. Futures are the multiple images of possible futures available to us in the present. The posts emerge from my practice and learnings, and aim to provide you with enough information to find your foresight and apply it in the present.

Structure

Each post is published in a post and tagged with a category (see below). Some posts are short, some are a bit longer. Some are text only, some have videos.

Posts start with a brief overview and might or might not end with a final comment with my view on the content. Links to move to new/old posts are at the bottom of each page. The site, though, is still a work in progress.

The posts

The posts are mainly informational in nature, although I am likely to include a reflection about my experience and lessons learned. Some are written in more of a formal style and others are less formal. I include links to resources I cite as often as possible and list additional resources at the bottom of a post if that’s useful.

Categories (otherwise known as tags)

A category list is provided below. The categories are broad areas of interest, with posts covering a different topic about that category.

I like to think it’s a dynamic list in the sense that we can add to it or change it to suit your needs and interests. I can’t promise I can write on all topics, but I’ll do my best!

About Foresight
Background knowledge: definitions/terminology, history, links with neuroscience, the power of worldviews, and a word about predictions.

Change
Post about change happening in our external environments.

Conversations about Futures
The new framework under development to integrate our inner and outer worlds in the design of foresight processes.

Futures Methods
Overviews of major futures methods in which we apply our foresight in practice - being developed, more posts to come. These post are not detailed so don’t expect a how-to-guide.

Getting Started with Foresight
How to find your own foresight capacity and how to begin to use foresight approaches in your work. Some first steps and lessons learned from my practice and research.

Reflections
My reflections on particular things, mostly related to end of year type posts.

Thinking about Futures
Exploring our worldviews and the assumptions that shape how we think about futures.

Worldviews
Some posts about our worldviews, what they are, how we construct them and how we can identify them - this section is a work in progress.

Enjoy reading and get in touch if you have any questions.
