Foresight fuses together research with imagination. Our foresight approach blends together research on trends and patterns, behavioural science to connect research to how humans think and act, and design to shape the strategy that becomes the future you want, not just the one that comes to you.
Foresight can help you see what is happening now, what is on the horizon, and explore strategic options that provide you with a pathway for innovation, sustainability…and impact.

In a collaboration with Peg Lahn from Lahn & Co., our Principal co-authored a foresight report on the future of the urban ‘neighbourscape’ in Toronto a project for OCAD University in 2013. This report correctly identified problems such as collapsing condominium balconies and the rise of the ‘gig’ economy and its influence on co-working spaces before they hit the mainstream in the city.
Through involvement in the Studio Y program at MaRS in Toronto, we were involved in teaching social innovators how to apply foresight, design, and systems thinking as means of identifying opportunities for social change and reducing threats from changing conditions. (2014-16).
