JISR’s applied research can assist medium-sized enterprises and NGOs in various ways:
Applied future studies
Strategic foresight and scenario projects for medium-sized commercial and social enterprises cover a spectrum of approaches, which range from trend extrapolation or quantified alternative developments to creative scenario design, goal-oriented alternative futures, or the mapping of complex systems and future interactions.
Horizon scanning and systems analysis identify strategic trends, emerging forces and gaps in knowledge. They also look for possible inflexion points and game changers in the broader environment that may have an impact on medium-sized enterprises.
Training and education workshops are provided to improve the future fitness of medium-sized enterprises. Where relevant, we facilitate assistance by our network of experts.
