Individuals, organisations and business are these days even more concerned about the uncertainty that the future holds.  In today’s volatile times the field of futures thinking is even more vital than ever before. Futures thinking is rooted on the understanding that knowledge of the future is not possible but knowledge of the factors that shape the future are known and the consequences provide a palette of possible future outcomes, states or scenarios.
