Technological advances as well as shifting economic and cultural landscapes have made identifying and planning for possible future threats increasingly difficult. Traditional planning and forecasting tools are necessary but not sufficient for these 21st century problems.
Threatcasting is a conceptual framework used to help multidisciplinary groups envision these future scenarios. It is also a process that enables systematic planning against threats ten years in the future. Utilizing the Threatcasting process, groups explore possible future threats and how to transform the future they desire into reality while avoiding undesired futures. Threatcasting is a continuous, multiple-step process with inputs from social science, technical research, cultural history, economics, trends, expert interviews, and science fiction storytelling. These inputs inform the exploration of potential visions of the future.
The APICS Threatcasting seminar provides managers and planners a comprehensive review of the principles and functions of Threatcasting. The presenter will give attendees a practical overview of the Threatcasting process with case studies. The presenter will also lead them through exercises to apply the process broadly and then explain how it can be applied specifically to their areas of interest.
