FUTURE THINKING WORKSHOP

with Alice Peschke and Katharina Heger

Why FUTURE THINKING?

Future Thinking makes it possible to approach desirable future scenarios in a playful and co-creative way and to shape them in more detail. The method supports, among other things, the accompaniment of transformation processes and the visualisation of possible change potentials. Existing paradigms can be overcome and new perspectives for future trends and desirable futures can be addressed. Back from the future, concrete action steps are defined and implemented in the here and now in order to approach this perspective together.

 

When is FUTURE THINKING useful?

  • People are affected

  • The initial situation is complex

  • There are different views on what the problem/solution is

  • Applicable solutions are not available

  • The solution requires innovation / learning / experimentation

  • It makes sense to take a perspective from the future

  • Room for "thinking out of the box" is needed

  • Questioning the status quo is desirable

  • To find new solutions, different stakeholders have to be involved

 

What does this workshop offer?

  • Jointly exploring, developing & shaping future knowledge and visions in multidisciplinary teams

  • Training long-term, strategic & future-oriented thinking & future skills in general

  • Promoting exchange & cooperation as well as opportunities for co-creation by employees

  • Stimulating future discourses

  • Use of co-creative methods to shape different futures and visions

  • Creating a common basis for further agile & innovative approaches

  • Strengthening self-awareness & promoting perspective change

  • Building empathy and understanding for each other

  • Taking a new look at attitudes, perspectives and behaviour

  • Increased acceptance of change processes, new forms of work/agile methods through active participation of employees

  • Possibility of team building across (departmental) boundaries
