In Future-Proof Your Business, world-renowned Applied Futurist Tom Cheesewright shares important tools that will help you to predict future trends within your industry, collect and analyse data to recognise early indicators of change, and convert that foresight into rapid action.
Drawing on his own experience, as well as experience and insights from industry authorities and case studies from thriving organisations around the world, Tom Cheesewright will help you see the future more clearly and respond with innovation – helping you to stay ahead of your competitors. Tom shares why adaptability is more important that optimization, that networks of building bricks provide an agile model for future-proofing businesses and explains why interfaces within your network need to be as friction-free as possible.
Particularly important for our uncertain times, the author lays out why it is important to keep a watchful eye on opportunities and risks on the near and far horizons, and why you need to understand the different values in each.
Suitable for start-up entrepreneurs and CEOs of large organisations, Future-Proof Your Business gives a practical set of tools to help plan better, make decisions faster and structure your organisation for agility. The book will develop the critical skills for the leaders of tomorrow by enhancing their foresight and decision-making abilities.
