Futures for Everyone

This research sought to determine whether or not futures methods are scalable and applicable to individual lives.

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.
