Workshop 1: GLAM Futures and Foresight - Better Strategic Thinking for Cultural Institutions
Thursday Sept 26, 2019
9AM - 12PM
- How do we prepare for the future in turbulent times?
- What do we need to understand about the world we're going to inhabit, in order to make bold but pragmatic strategic decisions?
- How do we balance evidence with aspiration, innovation, and the fact that no one can visit the future to gather data from it?
- How can our strategic plans address politics, relationships, and the messy reality of making things happen?
Drawing on case studies and examples from across industries, this highly interactive session will equip participants with tools to anticipate future developments and make more judicious strategic decisions at any level, from the deeply local to the national.
Participants will explore and experiment with scenario planning techniques which allow strategic foresight and confident decision-making even in turbulent, uncertain, or challenging situations.
This workshop will be led by Dr Matt Finch (UK) and Brendan Fitzgerald (Australia).
