Appendix 2. Leaders - Exemplary Foresight Practitioners and Organizations

Online Employment Communities and Platforms Helpful for Foresight Work

Organizational foresight leaders and previous leaders (“prev.”) at each are listed below in bold, where known. Check LinkedIn Advanced Search, using org name and relevant foresight terms (strategy, foresight, forecasting, design, innovation, scenarios, etc.), org site search, (site:domainname searchstring) and general Google search to find current and past foresight leaders at each org. Use multiple negatives to eliminate urls or terms you don’t want, and use quotes to get exact phrases, like “strategic foresight” and “future of”.
