• What’s the problem we should be solving?
• What business are we really in?
• How do we break down silos and work collaboratively?
• How do we identify new strategic partners?
• Why are we still tied to these legacy systems?

Foresight requires that you ask better and different questions. Our Foresight Studios are deep dives into hard questions, like those above. We help you inventory what’s been done already and arrive at fresh insights. We define foresight as hindsight and insight converted into strategy. And a great strategy depends on your ability to reframe your perspective, recombine ideas from unexplored areas, identify new value and engage thought diversity among your teams.

Our Foresight Studios are not lectures, seminars or abstract explorations. They are interactive, co-created and actionable- tied to a real challenge you have.

Goals are dreams with deadlines. Thus, your team will leave inspired and equipped with tools and frameworks to apply to their actual project and business challenge- on a timeline! Most importantly, our Foresight Studios help you identify new business and organizational value.

We design Foresight Studios for:

• Executive leadership;
• Board retreats; and
• Teams at critical inflection points.

3i Framework™

The 3i Creativity™ is Figure 8 Thinking’s action based methodology to cultivate creativity. Curiosity is the context for all creative action. Intuition, ‪improvisation, and insight are the major components of creativity. They do not occur in a linear order; rather there is an integrative ebb and flow between them. Intuition, or pattern recognition, and improvisation, a chaordic system that values structure and randomness, are critical to ignite the final insight.

Wonder Rigor™

WonderRigor™ is a chaordic system which requires us to be grounded in curiosity, and regularly loop in and out of improvisation, intuition and impact. Wonder is about imagining, supposing, day-dreaming and asking “What if?”; rigor is about discipline, time-on-task and structure.
