The “Futures Triangle” is a great tool for explaining your, or your organisation’s, actions/inactions/reactions toward the time ahead.
This model postulates that there are three forces to contend with:
- The pull: what is pulling you toward your future? What visions, images, ideals and so on do you have?
- The push: what are the changes that are happening anyway? What new technology, what social change, what demographic trend will impact you?
- The weight: what are the continuities? What are those things that are holding you or your organization back, what inertia is there?
And so, thinking through these three factors may well unlock the future you have been seeking.
