FUTURES RESEARCH The value of futures research is less in its forecasting accuracy, than in its usefulness in planning and in opening minds to consider new possibilities and changing the policy agendas. Foresight studies apply futures research methods. Source: Millennium Project, head office in Washington, 36 global nodes in 2009 Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2010
Method for Innovation Brainstorming /Idea Creation Futures Workshop is a Futures Research Method for creating futures ideas for organisational Development, or solutions to a given problem, or innovating new futures alternatives for given activities or operations, or simple and complex phenomena etc. through combining diverse expertise. Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2010
Innovation Actions with Diverse Expertise Innovations Innovation of complex issues needs unexpected cross-associations of diverse expertise and approaches! Brainstorming Evaluation Areas of expertise Innovation domain Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2010
Power of group work • brainstorming • idea creation • grouping • combining ideas • evaluating • ranking ideas according to • individual preferences • through deliberation Step on the edge of your comfort zone! Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2009
Approach to Innovation Work Why? What? Where? Who? How? Think outside the box! When? Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2009
Idea creation through brainstorming in groups 1. Group of people conducts the brainstorming by suggesting futures ideas (or problems/needs) on the topics. These are numbered and documented by the group leaders (reporters) on the flip-paper using felt-top pens (and post-its) by CAPITAL LETTERS for all to see. 2. After about 1.5 hour and/or when all ideas are documented, they are reorganised (and combined if there are similar ideas and prioritised by the group by giving "red points" 3, 2 and 1 to the best three ideas respectively -> break (3. Brainstorming continues after the participants have re-selected their groups.) 4. Evaluation cycle -> Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2010
Evaluation Cycle - all groups 1. Study the existing ideas on the flip paper 2. Try to "ride" on an idea - think if this idea could be enhanced by you 3. Write a new idea - if some similar idea already exists, combine these together 4. Discuss any idea on the flip with someone near you (deliberation!) 5. Vote for best ideas by giving "red points": 3, 2 and 1 for the three best respectively 6. Document the three best ideas -> "pub session" group 1 Evaluation Cycle group 2 • group 3 Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2010
In order to have success • Get the "whole system" in the room! • Invite a significant cross-section of all • parties with a stake in the outcome! • Get everyone talking about the same world! • Think glocally! • Urge full attendance - Keep part-time • participants to a minimum! • Meet under healthy conditions! - airy rooms with windows healthy snacks and meals, adequate breaks... • Work across three days (sleep twice)! - people need "soak time" to take in everything that happens... • Ask for voluntary public commitments to specific next steps before people leave!

Innovation Topics 1: New Ideas for Business Models 2: New Ideas for International Cooperation (between EU, US etc.) 3: New Ideas for Futures Technologies Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2010
New Technology goes through three stages: "First, it is ridiculed by those ignorant of its potential Next, it is subverted by those threatened by its potential Finally, it is considered self-evident" - Unknown Dr. Auli Keskinen, 2008
