How to Use this Toolkit

The Beyond Strategic Planning: A Foresight Toolkit for Decision Makers provides a brief introduction to strategic foresight and how it can be used to support decision-making. It contains suggestions about how to get started applying foresight for impact. It builds on insights from California 100’s work to envision and realize an aspirational future for the state of California, and SOIF’s experience working with governments, civil society, and other sectors
internationally.

It will not answer all of your questions, but will help you to understand what foresight is, and how it can be used to support strategic planning, policy-making and leadership under conditions of uncertainty.

This toolkit introduces a simple, pragmatic approach to using foresight in communities and organizations. It helps you to start to connect into a broader community of practice, and to access tools, resources and approaches that you can begin to use on a daily basis.
