KAE partners with Future Agenda to enable our clients to better understand the future changes, to see new growth opportunities, and to make the link between emerging trends and direct business impacts.
Future Agenda provides a lens through which organisations can identify major innovation opportunities.
The next decade will see more people and constrained resources but better connectivity and a shift in economic power to Asia, a greater disparity between the haves and have-nots, and a quicker pace of urbanisation. How will this affect the world we live in? What are the other big issues for the next decade? These are concerns that individuals, companies and governments need to address.
Future Agenda engages with a global audience to build a bridge between the traditionally separate areas of foresight and innovation. The results of these activities have ranged from refined strategic priorities and new innovation opportunities as well as a better understanding of emerging challenges and risks to businesses and better informed leadership teams.
“The website holds a wealth of ideas and insights – the programme provides you the opportunity to interact with an amazing network of leading thinkers, strategists, scientist, business leaders and influencers.”
Organisations around the world use the Future Agenda material as a core input to their thinking:
- Some have used it to challenge and refine core assumptions
- Some have used it to identify new growth platforms, and
- Others have used it to stimulate new thinking across their organisations
The first Future Agenda programme was sponsored by Vodafone Group in 2010. We are now planning a second global version of the programme to run in 2013/14 to engage an even wider audience of experts from more countries to look at the key challenges and opportunities for the world in 2025.
The Future Agenda website details the output from multiple discussions. Fifty workshops in twenty-five locations have created a unique view of the next ten years. At a time where important decisions need to be made across many areas, it provides a distinctive perspective to stimulate ideas and action.
