The Foresight Academy: Strategic Foresight Certificate Program

Course Description

The Foresight Academy is a groundbreaking online program that teaches leaders, teams and individuals the same skills that innovators, industry disruptors and change-makers have used to guide and shape the future they wanted to see. This program contains twelve weeks of material divided into four modules that teach you the key concepts and skills required to:

  • Identify and act on emerging trends, issues and events that are relevant to your long-term success.
  • Uncover the impacts and implications that these trends, issues and events may have on the future growth and value of your organization.
  • Create an ongoing process for monitoring the development of those emerging trends and issues.
  • Develop powerful narratives that inspire others to take action.
  • Determine the strength and viability of your existing and proposed strategies in multiple future scenarios.
  • Create a culture that thrives on communicating their ideas and collaborating to make those ideas a reality.

Each module consists of two to five videos teaching the core concepts, tools, and practices of strategic foresight. All course materials, downloads, and instruction are provided in a members-only website. You’ll be able to follow along and learn at your own pace after each module is released. Each lesson is delivered in video format with a downloadable mp3, which means you can watch at your leisure or listen on the go. Once you have completed this program, you will receive an official Certificate in Strategic Foresight from Graduate and Executive Education, Haslam College of Business, at the University of Tennessee.
