Headlines from the future

Headlines from the future is a common futures activity. It helps get you thinking about how the future might be different, and the reasons why (which then leads neatly onto what you can do about it!). It's also that perfect time to let out the tabloid journalist within us all!

We recently ran this exercise with our training partners. It's an exercise that we run as part of the training we offer for infrastructure organisations, so it's great if our partners have already done it and have a better idea of what the training is like.

So what did they come up with?

Here's a taster:

Fourth Sector Pathfinder Initiative Launched!

All Schools to be Charities

Public Sector More Innovative Than 3rd Sector


They don't have to be things that you think will definitely happen; or things you would want to happen. But it's great for starting the strategic analysis process.

Have a look at the rest of the headlines here.

They also did a PEST - Political, Economic, Social and Technological drivers for the sector over the next 5 - 10 years. Have a look and let us know if you agree or not!
