We are taking a new case study-based approach to short executive courses to provide agile and rapid training on common rationales, approaches, frameworks, methods and types of outcomes related to iconic and recently completed foresight projects in multiple application areas.

Our case-based approach enables a more intense interaction between course participants as they gain insights and new knowledge on state-of-the-art foresight practices related to successfully completed foresight projects.

Together with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, we are launching a new set of online courses focused on foresight ‘best practices’. The course is structured around six case study sessions and three assessment sessions delivered over a 3-half day programme.

You may register for one half day, two half days or the full course.  Costs are shown in the brochure.

The course will be delivered by Dr Rafael Popper and Jouko Myllyoja.
