Horizon Scanning for an Uncertain Future

While it is not possible to predict the future, many public bodies use horizon scanning to detect signals of change and trends. This enables them to prepare appropriate response should the change materialise. This mean public bodies won’t be unprepared to seize opportunities or mitigate threats. As the Board need to provide directions and leadership, it is vital that senior leaders understand horizon scanning and able interpret findings and insights. This will help the Board to make important decisions and ensure the public body remain prepared for an uncertain future.

Horizon Scanning for an Uncertain Future is one out of many online virtual courses within our Accountability & Governance series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each participant gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
