Threatcasting is ASCM's new seminar!

Technological advances as well as shifting economic and cultural landscapes have made identifying and planning for possible future threats increasingly difficult. Traditional planning and forecasting tools are necessary but not sufficient for these 21st century problems.

Threatcasting is a conceptual framework used to help multidisciplinary groups envision these future scenarios.

The ASCM Threatcasting seminar provides managers and planners a comprehensive review of the principles and functions of Threatcasting. The presenter will give attendees a practical overview of the Threatcasting process with case studies. The presenter will also lead them through exercises to apply the process broadly and then explain how it can be applied specifically to their areas of interest.

About the Presenter

 

Brian David Johnson

 

The future is Brian David Johnson's business. As a futurist he works with organizations to develop an actionable 10-15 year vision and what it will feel like to live in the future. His work is called futurecasting, using ethnographic field studies, technology research, cultural history, trend data, global interviews and even science fiction to provide a pragmatic road map of the future. As an applied futurist Johnson has worked with governments, trade organizations, start-ups and multinational corporations to not only help envision their future but specify the steps needed to get there. Johnson is currently the futurist in residence at Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination, a professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and the Director of the ASU Threatcasting Lab. He is also a Futurist and Fellow at Frost and Sullivan.
