Helping organisations, governments society and individuals think about, and plan for, the future is a core part of Triarchy's publishing programme.
Our partner, International Futures Forum (IFF), has a number of titles in this area, notably:
Daniel Wahl's Designing Regenerative Cultures is an impressive and wide-ranging analysis of what’s wrong with our societies, organizations, ideologies, worldviews and cultures – and how to put them right. The book covers the finance system, agriculture, design, ecology, economy, sustainability, organizations and society at large.
On of the most intriguing topics currently being discussed by futurists is the likely future evolution of the human mind. This is a subject discussed in depth by Jack Huber in his 2013 title The Future of the Mind.
Planning for the future is also a highly technical matter and one of the longest-established and highly valued approaches is Scenario Planning. Facing the Fold brings together a collection of the best essays on the subject by one of its leading proponents, James (Jay) Ogilvy.
Scenario Planning is one of several techniques discussed by Stephen Millett in his guide to forecasting and planning. Managing the Future offers a straightforward and pragmatic approach to strategic planning. It takes an honest look at the limitations of forecasting, and shows how managers can best use a variety of futuring methods, including scenarios, horizon scanning and trend monitoring.
Strategic Foresight introduces a systemic approach to thinking about the future for any organisation - and a toolkit of different techniques. Invaluable.
