Foresight Journey

Foresight Journey

In this format, we guide our clients on their way to open up alternative attitudes and worldviews and to develop a higher level of innovation and leadership skills for a renewal process in their company. The exchange you have with our international network and cooperation partners from science and practice supports thinking and perception beyond the boundaries of your own company and makes contradictions and taboos of latent topics visible.

In 12 days of attendance, divided into 3 modules over 5 months, participants learn methods, procedures, techniques and tools that help

develop alternative ways of thinking, in order to recognize basic assumptions, values, and strategies of the company from a different angle and to call them substantially into question.

building up higher-level leadership skills, to mobilize the company at all levels to enable alternative orientation options or problem solving as well as

acquiring new innovation skills, in order to prototype a potentially new and future-oriented field of action in your own company context and to develop an understanding of the problem.

That which is learned is strategically and profitably used on a specific project within the company’s own core business. The focus is on long-term corporate success.

Other places where this learning has taken place are the universities of St. Gallen (CH) and Stanford (USA).


Due to current events we have to postpone the upcoming Foresight Journey. News will be posted in due time.
