Strategic Foresight x Emerging Technology – Methods for UX Leaders

Strategic Foresight is the art & science of understanding and designing for the future. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce frameworks and methodologies to increase the resilience of the organization in the face of changing consumer desires, market dynamics, and regulatory environments.

Often confused with trying to “predict” the future, foresight is about understanding how different forces can impact future business operating environments and translating these insights into strategies that help futureproof the organization.

This workshop will have a partial focus on the impacts of emerging technologies such as AI, machine learning, and blockchain, to help participants better deal with the (positive and negative) impacts of these disruptive forces.
