A need for foresights to:

  • Help industry organisations in developing a more long-term perspective
  • Bring together groups that should be interacting more actively

  • Aligning different mental models to be able to set up a common vision

foresights in strategic development in innovation norway
Foresights in strategic development in Innovation Norway
  • Innovation Norway is an organization that must be able to adjust to new situations and needs

Foresights can be used in:

  • Analysis of future development in important markets (capital market, labour market, ”China”…)
  • Organizational development in Innovation Norway (new roles towards our customers – new ways of creating value)
summing up
Summing up
  • Foresights should be put into our tool-box (but handled with care…)
  • When related to innovation processes foresights must be more than technological foresights – market, environment, societal, political factores must be brought in
  • Foresight processes should be based on broad participation – to create common visions/strategies and committment to act
  • Foresights must have a clear purpose: Learning – strategic development - desicion making
