KNOWEAUX disrupts traditional Trend & Foresight approaches:
Exponential technologies lead to ever shorter innovation cycles, to uncertain and highly dynamic market environments and to paradigm shifts in key industries.
Established foresight and trend-scouting processes are not sufficient anymore to think ahead of the complexity and dynamics of our time in order to actively shape futures.
Bridging the Gap
Companies are facing a critical gap between established innovation processes and future strategies.
Long-term scenarios - if existing at all* - are not adequately integrated into current product developments.
Future Modeling combines longterm visions with current innovation methods and processes.
Expeditions into the unknown
Is your Organization ready?
Questioning the old paradigm of knowing everything, managers nowadays need to solve problems in complex and totally unknown territories.
Experiments and expeditions are the only way to successfully explore and conquer non-existing markets.
Pioneers like Amazon, Tesla or Telefonica Alpha invest tremendous amounts of time and energy exploring the principles, fundamentals and technologies of future markets.
Long-term visions of possible futures are building the fundament (Future-DNA) for groundbreaking product and service strategies.
KNOWEAUX Applied Futures
Agile Future-Modeling is based on scientific methods from the field of Futures Studies and state-of-the-art entrepreneurial approaches. The long-term vision serves as a compass for numerous experiments in completely unknown terrains.
ITERATIVE FUTURE MODELING
In contrast to traditional innovation and trend processes, Future- Modeling starts with proactive visions of the future.
Subsequently, theses visions undergo a systematic back-casting process and serve as basis for near term product development and strategic decisions.
A Lean and powerful Framework to (re)think future scenarios and their impact on your innovation strategy
The methodology supports conscious decision-making in teams and provides concrete options for action, which enables the development of future proof services and products.
Future Modeling is an active training process uncovering personal hidden assumptions, while encouraging creativity with bold statements for possible futures.
The combination of long-term thinking and agile acting ensures effective implementation into current innovation processes and prototyping.
Workshops and Programs
Future Modeling addresses board members, managers, strategists and innovators in companies (corporates, SMEs, startups) and organizations (NGOs, politics, events)
Future Modeling works best in teams of 3-25 participants
We offer different individual formats:
1-3 days Future Modeling Workshop
3-10 days Future Modeling Sprint
1-x weeks Future Modeling Program
Company-wide implementation and long-term consulting
Train the trainer Program
Participants are accompanied by certified Future Model Architects
