Study the Past to Forecast the Future

"The further backward you look, the further ahead you see," advised Winston Churchill. Study the past and build new connections to the present if you want to improve your ability to anticipate change and forecast the future.  >>>


Case Studies    How To Overcome Resistance to Change  >>  Ways










Analyze Trends
Understand the drivers of change. Look at your business from outside in and ask ‒ relentlessly ‒ searching questions, such as 'What's happening in the marketplace? Where the competitors are heading?' Empathize with consumers to understand how their needs are changing.  >>>

Visualize the Future and Make a Contrastive Analysis
Visualize the big picture of the future, compare it with the current state of things and identify things that differ from one another. Think strategically about your way towards that future. 
A milestone-based thinking approach will help you anticipate the specific needs of your business.

Engage Your Subconscious Mind
The subconscious mind is the feeling mind. It reasons inductively, from the specific to the general. It works millions times faster than the conscious mind. The energy in the subconscious mind is inexhaustible. Using the subconscious mind is effortless. Once anticipation became habit ‒ in other words, the task was relegated to the subconscious mind ‒ it became so easy, that you do not have to think about it when you are doing it.  >>>

Question Strategic Assumptions
Any strategic decision or plan is only as good as the strategic assumptions upon which it is based. Consider the situation from many different angles. Allow originality to provoke new images of reality.
When an existing paradigm no longer adequately predicts relevant phenomenon, adopt a new paradigm. open your mind and start thinking differently, outside the box.  >>>
