Foresight and Scenario Planning

Long-range planning capability and capacity is essential for business survival and sustainability.


Whereas strategic planning is the dominant planning paradigm at present, the growing complexity and uncertainty in the social and business environment demands that shareholders, management and employees are kept abreast of key trends and developments, not only in the present but in the medium to long-term future. Foresight is the established transdisciplinary methodology for creating sustainable long-range plans in an inclusive manner.

Foresight seeks, first to establish the mental models of the key role players within the organization, and then explore the internal and transactional environment using various scanning tools and methodologies. This assessment provides an overview of the internal climate not only within the organization but also within the minds of the different players in the organization. Here, we offer a brief definition of foresight.

Foresight Strategies is led by a team of trained foresight facilitators all graduates of the COFISA Programme, an initiative of the Department of Science and Technology in collaboration with the Finnish Futures Research Centre. The lead consultant, Mphathi Nyewe is a graduate of the Stellenbosch Futures Research Centre.
