Skillshare Breakfast #12: Thinking futures – tools for envisaging, shaping and changing the future [members only]
Do you want to change how the world works?
Changing the way the world works means having a picture of what the world should look like and an idea of how to create change.
Whether selling sustainable clothing, developing social platforms or new forms of using energy, everybody needs to understand the complex world in which they exist.
A better understanding of the context, the actors, networks, competitors, regulation and friends can always help to understand and support one’s own actions.
Over the last 15 years fellow Hubber Katy Whitelegg has worked with many different tools and methods that enable pictures to be shaped and ideas formed.
Some of the methods and tools include foresight, social shaping of technology, transition management, design thinking, service design, user experience and logic charts.
In her presentation she will give us an overview of some of the most exciting elements of these tools, but also a critical assessment of what they can and can’t do.
