More > forecasting, shipping, flight and other decisions depend on them.We make predictions all the time and sometimes we get it right.Strategic foresight is not about prediction. It is about understanding and anticipating different futures. The future is rarely a straight line from the past–it is subject to change and uncertainty. What strategic foresight as a process does is seek to understand why the future will be different from the past and what the implication of these differences are. In this book, I provide insights from forty years of consulting practice with organizations from large (Oracle, TESCO, Heinz, Barclays, Conoco-Phillips), medium (Debenhams, West Yorkshire Police, Millennium Copthorne) and small (Elk Island Public Schools, Alberta Assessment Consortium, Contact North/Contact Nord); for-profit and non-profit.< Less

This paper focuses on the interrelationship among national interests, stated ends, means to achieve those ends, and the strategies required to tie all of them together into a cohesive and effective... More > vision for the commitment of U.S. forces. The introduction addresses the current U.S. debate regarding proposed actions in the Iraq War and postulates that the lack of true strategic discussion, particularly by our national leadership who instead prefer to focus on far less appropriate discussions such as tactics and techniques, inhibits the development of a comprehensive and effective overarching vision and ultimately is to blame for the setbacks that the U.S.-led coalition has experienced in Iraq.

The fact that so much of U.S. post-Cold War foreign policy involves interventions merely exacerbates the difficulties a lack of strategic foresight engenders.< Less

It espouses good planning and invokes foresight considerations as a sine qua non for getting the right strategic gaps closed, the misdeeds avoided and the right mechanics applied for a successful project outcome.< Less
