Description

Today we all face more impossible challenges than ever before. But flash foresight lets you transform the impossible into the possible, revealing hidden opportunities and allowing you to solve your biggest problems-before they happen. Daniel Burrus is one of the world's leading forecasters, corporate strategists, and visionaries. Over the past quarter century, he has established a reputation worldwide for his exceptional record of accurately predicting the future of technological change and its direct impact on the business world. "Wouldn't it be amazing if you could predict the future-and be right?" writes Burrus. "You can: all you have to do is leave out the parts you could be wrong about! And the amazing thing is, when you know where to look, there's more than enough you can be right about to make all the difference." From small businesses to multinationals, individual careers to entire industries, Flash Foresight looks at how Burrus's seven radical flash foresight "triggers" have transformed dozens of careers, fortunes, and lives. Both engaging and enlightening, Flash Foresight provides an easy-to-implement blueprint for applying the same strategies to your own business, enabling you to see the invisible and do the impossible. In the past, flash foresight was useful. Today, as the pace of technological change accelerates almost beyond the point of comprehension, it's an imperative.

Professional reviews

"A technology forecaster and strategist explains the thinking processes he uses to predict important transformations in business and consumer products. The seven "flash foresight triggers"--or thinking processes--he outlines sound deceptively simple and familiar. But with the help of rich examples and straightforward writing, his ideas unfold as sophisticated, creative, and highly useful for listeners who are trying to anticipate future challenges in their jobs, investments, or businesses. Narrator William Dufris brings steady enthusiasm to this exciting discussion. His flawless phrasing and engagement with the material add to the accessibility of these fascinating insights on how anyone can predict and harness the future. T.W.
