Future Scenarios

Using alternative futures strategically

Knowing what the future holds: TRENDONE explores possible, plausible and desirable futures for you by developing specific future scenarios. As a link between unpredictable external factors and controllable internal factors, we thus open up areas of opportunity to ensure your future success.

The process of scenario planning is an effective instrument to create or question strategies. With future scenarios from TRENDONE you are best prepared for uncertainties.

Using uncertainties to find spaces of possibility

There are always more uncertainties than we would like, probably because these uncertainties deviate from our preferred target picture.

Involving experts, core stakeholders and disruptors

This makes it all the more important to look at alternative futures so that we can prepare for as many uncertainties as possible.

Research weak signals, trends, and facts & figures

Trends, drivers, and unexpected events interact in multiple ways, leading to endless permutations that produce a variety of plausible futures that expand over time.

Strategic Foresight

Future narratives bring change processes and possible effects into focus.

From the first-person perspective, the future appears rather linear and singular. We like to believe that the future we see as likely will prevail.

In reality, however, there are many possible futures, since the future is not linear but a system of interdependent forces.
