Wednesday Web Jam no. 105 - “Polarities: The practice of seeing both sides of a problem” with Margaret Lee
Have you ever managed conflicting mandates from stakeholders? Or seen an organization make a decision, only to swing back again months later? These tensions are a sign that a polarity is at play. Many mistake polarities for problems to be solved, but polarities are not solvable problems and have no absolute right or wrong answers. In this WWJ session we’ll see how ubiquitous polarities are and how to identify and work with them. Polarity management is a simple and effective tool for navigating complex issues at work and in life.
Wednesday Web Jam no. 104 - "Wheels up for the Future! Exploring how one thing leads to another" with Bart Édes
This session will present “strategic foresight”, a structured and systematic way of using ideas about the future to better anticipate and prepare for change. COVID-19 wrecked the plans and strategies of organizations everywhere, while injecting greater uncertainty into a world already undergoing disruptive social and technological change. Foresight can help us navigate through the recovery and beyond by discerning plausible alternative futures and applying the insights to present-day planning. It is ideally suited to a world upended by the pandemic and rapid transformations in the way we live, work and interact.
During the session, Bart will demonstrate how to use the “Futures Wheel,” one of the various tools and techniques used by Foresight practitioners to explore potential consequences of trends and events
