Future-Oriented Innovations

If you’re responding to the seismic shifts in your industry or trying to take a long-term approach, changing your organization’s future orientation can have significant advantages. Research has proven that businesses with a strong future orientation are more efficient and innovative. To be more forward-looking, you can encourage managers and employees to develop and implement new strategies and processes that help the organization better prepare for the future and adjust to the latest trends.

The development of future-oriented innovations requires a method of dialog to assess business opportunities and possible barriers. This can be achieved by using a framework of futures literacy that incorporates knowledge about the future as well as futures awareness and the capability to make decisions about the future. Futures literacy is the ability of a person or an organization to discern futures, develop them, and communicate them. It is based upon the notion that creating and articulating futures is multidisciplinary. It involves various domains, spheres and stakeholders. Futures awareness is the ability to recognize future possibilities. It is based on the way they perceive of the world.

Future-oriented innovation can be achieved by developing products and services that will improve the lives of people. These improvements are the result of collaboration between a variety of technologically advanced process stakeholders, and require a thorough assessment of current problems and possible solutions. This type of innovation also requires a profound epistemic awareness and the ability to listen to suggestions from the long term future.
