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 enable them to prepare appropriate response should the change materialised. 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.
