The application of foresight to address the challenges of
uncertainty and rapid change has grown dramatically in the past
decade. In that period, the techniques have been greatly refined
and the scope has been broadened to encompass future-oriented
technology analysis (FTA) and more recently, the concept and
practice of strategic intelligence. FTA addresses directly the
longer-term future through the active and continuous development of
visions, and pathways to realise these visions. It is increasingly
seen as a valuable management and policy tool complementing, and
extending further into the future, classical strategy, planning,
and decision-making approaches. This book charts the development of
FTA and provides the first coherent description and analysis of its
practical application and impact in the worlds of business,
government, education and research in both advanced and developing
countries. It draws on papers addressing the application of FTA
around the globe which were presented at the Second International
Seville Seminar in September 2006. The insights and practical
experience will be invaluable for company managers, government
ministers and officials, researchers and academics with
responsibilities for effective planning and decision-making in an
increasingly turbulent and unpredictable world.
