In times of global instability and polarisation, rapid technological changes, sustainability crises and massive value shifts, anticipatory thinking is the most crucial skill to understand the speed and impact of change.
At Manyone, we help you understand the changes shaping the future of your business. We enable you to identify the opportunities these changes bring by offering a design-driven and collaborative approach to foresight that delivers tangible strategic outcomes that go beyond traditional off-the-shelf forecasting.
Turning future potential into present action
Strategic Foresight is the craft of envisioning and shaping a better future through thoughtful analysis, imaginative scenario building, and the articulation of visionary future opportunities. It empowers you to make informed decisions in uncertain and complex environments.
Our multidisciplinary strategic design capabilities enable us to translate insights and opportunities into tangible, future-facing experiences, products, and services that delivers on identified potential and ensures clear market differentiation at speed.
Manyone Futures Radar
An essential part of our foresight practice is to ensure solidity in our findings and recommendations through a triangulation of research, and by combining it with ongoing trend monitoring on our Futures Radar. Here, we collect and also openly share the trends. It gives us a live and updated view of the tendencies that are shaping tomorrow, and it serves as a strong off-set for our strategic foresight projects, where we tailor specific research and analysis to your individual industry and context.
Stay ahead of the curve by anticipating, understanding, and adapting to the emerging trends and forces shaping your industry, your customers expectations, and the world around you.
Use foresight to identify and validate groundbreaking ideas and positions with a powerful outlook while knowing how to prepare for and deliver on the identified potential now and going forward.
Develop experiences, products, and services from a solid understanding of what will bring you a strong future market position and clear relevance in order to withstand the inevitable changes in your industry.
