She also describes:

  • How to develop your foresight muscles,
  • How to scan emerging futures on a regular basis,
  • What happens when you combine emerging trends together,
  • What went wrong with the emergency response plan at the nuclear power plant Fukushima Daiichi and what other companies with emergency response plans can learn,

  • Why using foresight strategically gives you the side benefit of seeing patterns so critical for workplace health and decision making accuracy.
