Futures Thinking is a systematic and strategic approach to anticipating and understanding possible future scenarios by considering multiple perspectives and drivers of change. It involves analyzing trends, uncertainties, and potential disruptions to develop a holistic view of future possibilities. This methodology helps individuals and organizations make informed decisions, adapt to emerging challenges, and plan for plausible futures.

This methodology, which you will learn and practice during the masterclass, will allow you to explore the depths of your creativity in a safe space, elevate your problem-solving skills, and acquire the tools and resources to shape the future.

Consider what comes next through a “future of utilities” lens.
