The future is both exciting and full of opportunity but can also be a place of uncertainty and trepidation. To help you find a way through disruption, we are sharing the plays that Aurecon uses to anticipate and take charge of change.
The Aurecon Futures Playbook is a set of plays, tools and processes, we use to explore and make sense of our potential futures. Based on strategic foresight frameworks and theories, these plays are designed to help you identify and categorise different drivers of change, identify impacts and implications, and ultimately identify actions to take.
These plays are best shared as a workshop, part of team-based processes or can be adapted based on your needs. They fall into three categories:
Dynamics + Patterns
Identifying, analysing and understanding the drivers of change likely to impact you.
This will help you to navigate uncertainty, by identifying which drivers matter, and what they look like.
Implications + Insights
Exploring and identifying the impacts, insights and implications of change. This forms an important part of being able to anticipate change.
Strategy + Action
Developing actions to address the futures you face, and act on what you see.
What is Futures Research?
Futures Research draws on the fields of Futures Studies and Strategic Foresight, disciplines that focus on how to interpret, analyse and respond to the future.
In Futures Research we take a systematic and methodical evidence-based approach to understand the range of uncertainties we face over the long term.
Armed with this understanding, we identify strategies to anticipate and manage this complexity.
Through this work we seek to get ahead of disruption and create opportunity from what is emerging, as opposed to being disrupted by it.
