'Look before You Leap: A Foresight Primer'
Foresight is the early detection of anything that is likely to disrupt business, social, or technological continuity. Foresight and design are inherently complementary practices, as foresight helps us see that there is a range of possible futures while design helps make those possibilities tangible. The foresight workshop will equip participants with a disciplined approach to detect signals of change, identify possible futures, and assess the implications for future state experience design.
