Futures for Everyone

by Verne Wheelwright

ABSTRACT

This research sought to determine whether or not futures methods are scalable and applicable to individual lives. Could the same futures methods that are used effectively around the world by governments, institutions and businesses be applied successfully to individuals? This paper describes the development of a futuring process for individuals. This system substantially reduces complexity and guides individuals through the steps of personal research, scenario development, and personal strategic planning. Post-doctoral experience suggests some effective learning approaches.
