This high-level workshop is formed in response to The Dubai Knowledge Summit of 2016. The objective of the event is to gain a deeper understand of Future Foresight in government and the private sector within the UAE and the region. We further explore the role of academic institutions as future accelerators in the broader horizon.
Future Foresight is the ability to systematically explore the future to identify drivers of change and to consider potential outcomes to inform strategic decisions. Strategic thinking underpins the development of a strategic foresight capacity, and is the first step in the development of robust strategy. Future Foresight presents a vital pillar of the Excellency framework, which provides an opportunity for the best practice development for innovative reality.
The objective of this forum is to take a strategic look at the latest trends and realities that impact future development and design of strategic thinking in the region. The workshop will also serve to identify future foresight needs and contribute to future foresight through proactive identification of challenges, obstacles and recent issues.
