In 2006, Wheelwright was awarded a PhD. from Leeds Metropolitan University for his groundbreaking research in the application of futures methods to individual lives. That research led to the development of The Personal Futures Workbook, which provides detailed worksheets and explanations that lead individuals through the same futuring process used successfully by major businesses and institutions worldwide for decades. The workbook was tested in workshop settings, then made available to the general public as a free download at Wheelwright’s web site, www.personalfutures.net. The workbook has been translated into several languages and is used as a text in colleges and universities.

Wheelwright has just published his current book, It’s Your Future… Make it a Good One!which offers a detailed description and explanation of how futures methods can be effectively applied to one’s personal life. The book offers insights into how futures methods work and is intended to help individuals develop a long term perspective not only in their personal lives but also in their careers. The book is written to be useful to people of all ages, from teenagers to octogenarians.
