Using Foresight Thinking to Enhance the Productivity of Nations

Friday 9 March 2018

As Nations look to develop their understanding of Productivity and more effective planning, National Productivity Councils are often the first point of call for Governments looking for ideas. The Asia Productivity Organisation has been running since 1961 helping its member countries develop more effective approaches. I've just spent a week in Tokyo helping a group of them think about the future

The APO https://www.facebook.com/AsianProductivityOrganization/ hosted Maree Conway of Thinking Futures and myself exploring the application of futures thinking to National Productivity. Graciously hosted by Dr Santhi Kanoktanaporn and his excellent team here in #Tokyo and attended by all the NPO heads from #Vietnam #Malaysia #SriLanka #Thailand #India #China #Indonesia and the #Philippines. We're very much looking forward to the next phase working with each Country to build their futures thinking and strategic planning capabilities.

We introduced the group to #StrategicForesight, provided them with a series of frameworks for establishing their #ForesightDepartments and showed them how to jump the persistent and debilitating gap in most approaches to #StrategicPlanning

Can the United States Survive the Childish Tantrums of an Incompetent President?
Monday 24 December 2018
Here we are with the last posting of the year looking at the potential for wide ranging strategy for a country like the United States. Arguably the United States is undergoing its own version of #Brexit though without the vote of the people. Instead the dictatorial nature of what I see as an incompetent strategic leader is unilaterally withdrawing the USA from its long standing and beneficial partnerships with the rest of the world.
