Frameworks for Quality Futures Intelligence

Frameworks for Quality Futures Intelligence

Environmental scanning is the lifeblood of Strategic Foresight, but getting started can feel like information overload!

This helpful resource includes two easy to understand Futures Intelligence frameworks- one to structure what to scan around (STEEP), and the other to structure implications (Point of Impact Questions). These two frameworks operate together for robust environmental scanning.

Also included is a desktop wallpaper as a convenient reminder of the two frameworks.
