Flash Foresight: How to See the Invisible and Do the Impossible
The pace and intensity of change is paralysing many of today's executives and managers. But what if we could accurately foresee what's ahead and use that insight to anticipate and take advantage of opportunities-or prevent major problems from happening? Internationally renowned technology forecaster and corporate strategist Daniel Burrus specialises in solving impossible problems by seeing invisible solutions, and has earned a reputation for accurately predicting the future of technological change and its direct impact on the business world. In "Flash Foresight", Burrus reverse-engineers his predictive and strategic process, providing the skills and techniques everyone can use to harness change and become masters of their own futures. "Flash foresight" is what you get when you combine a shift of perspective, to look at things from a fresh point of view, with a grasp of where current trends of change are taking us in the future,Burrus writes. 'It's about transforming the impossible with a glimpse of the possible.
"Flash Foresight" introduces numerous real people and organisations-from nurses and educators to Amazon, Crocs, Netflix, and Zappos - who have discovered how to find real solutions and achieve the impossible. Whether it's a time crunch or financial squeeze, a shrinking market, or unsolvable situation, there is a solution; all we need to do is make it visible,' Burrus argues. With "Flash Foresight", we can.
