SFDW: Strategic Planning vs. Too Many Futures

Just when you thought that San Francisco Design Week couldn’t get any more exciting, along comes a whole new future to shake things up. “Workshop Your Futures” will delve into the shameful truth that all of the tech gurus and futurists in the world are trying to hide… there is no way to predict the future!

Instead of trying to guess at things that you have no way of predicting, the “Workshop Your Futures” event instead gives you the skills and tools that you need to analyze current trends and plan strategically for many possible outcomes, and the many possible futures that can spring out of each new development.

In this workshop, you will learn how to use classic strategic foresight techniques, design thinking and your own powers of innovation to prepare for the possibilities of the future. Formulating contingency plans to give you insight 5 years, 10 years or even 20 years ahead of the competition.

Led by the authors of the internationally beloved personal futures workbook “What The Foresight” Julia Rose West and Alida Draubt, this event will help you to prepare for things that are impossible to prepare for. So if you have an interest in technology, design education, product development or you are just curious about the possibilities, come on down to:
