In a world of real time change Strategic Futurist Thinking is a necessary survival tool. We must learn how to escape the limitations of past knowledge in order to envisage alternative futures that differ qualitatively from the past. We are all limited by what we know and the fact that everything we know comes from the past: we were taught, we learnt, we experienced. But the problems we face do not exist in the past. If they are past they are solved and no longer problems. All problems are by definition future problems. Strategic Futurist Thinking teaches us how to ask the right questions about current developments, how to develop futurist habits of thought and the ability to envisage desirable and possible alternative futures.
