What are the dfifferences between forecasting and predictionsof the future?How do you develop creative scenarios for - anything? What are the possible errors in futures planning? These are discussed so be patient as we got messed up the first few moments in phone connections. He's worth the listen.The Certificate in Strategic Foresight is being offered by Dr. Peter Bishop at the University of Houston Masters Program for Futures Studies.Peter has been a long-term partner of the World Future Society and has been offering the Introduction to Futures Studies course at the Society's Annual Conference for half a decade.Previous participants stated-"Strategic Foresight has helped me structure futures thinking and futures strategies into a curriculum that can be used for middle school students that will prepare these future world leaders to anticipate and cope with change, and to empower them with the ability to create solutions for a preferable future."Public Education,We expected this: a foundation in framing, research, and forecasting techniques, visioning and planning approaches, and tactics for action within our organizations.The instructors are superb, and fellow students are dynamic and hail from a range of backgrounds and locales. In courses designed this well, there's often a synergy, even a gestalt of sorts that lasts until the course ends. The effects of Dr. Bishop's class, however, are ongoing. Many of those involved in the course have significantly changed their careers, their positions, their influence over planning, thanks to the powerful tools gained in the course. We made permanent connections (always good for support in the world of foresight) and important connections for future opportunities. This goodness, CEU credits, and a certificate for the wall to lends credibility to his methods.
