  • About the Edition

    Nobody can predict the future, but some forecasts are clearly better than others. Foresight is important—all decisions we make today will play out in the future. So wouldn’t it be useful to be able to tell a good forecast from a bad one? And even more so in these uncertain times.

    “Future Savvy,” shows readers how to discern quality in future thinking, with examples and case studies of interest to business and policy/government decision-makers. It views expert foresight as a crucial resource, but it puts sharp tools in the hands of forecast users.

    Thinking clearly about the future—about complex change—is hard to do. There’s no shortage of predictions available to business, policy or government institutions wanting to know more about the future. In fact it’s ridiculously easy to get predictions on any topic: we’re bombarded with projections every day—in newspapers and business magazines, and from government agencies, think tanks, consultant reports, stock market guides, and so on.

    What’s hard is knowing when they are right.

    Which of the endless sea of sources is valid? How do you know which predictions to take seriously, which to be wary of, and which to throw out entirely? Which ones do you let guide your decisions?

    Future Savvy says ordinary people can judge that. Dismayed, to say the least by what passes as future thinking, the book holds up a mirror to the forecasting field—often over-quantified, or bound up in technobabble or wishful thinking—and offers a one-stop everyday reference that helps foresight consumers critically evaluate what analysts, consultants, brokers, and other gurus and talking heads are saying about tomorrow.
