What intelligence issues should we expect to emerge by 2027 with the melting of Arctic ice and the exploitation of its resources?
This workshop introduces participants to the concept of Strategic Foresight Analysis, a process that helps analysts anticipate the many ways the future may evolve, avoid surprise, and uncover unknown unknowns. The instructors define and discuss the purpose of foresight analysis and review several Foresight Structured Analytic techniques. The workshop focuses on the Multiple Scenarios Generation technique for envisioning multiple futures by identifying the key drivers of a particular issue, activity, or behavior. The instructors define and discuss the purpose of three techniques—Key Assumptions Check, Structured Brainstorming, and Multiple Scenarios Generation—as well as the cognitive biases and analytic traps they are designed to mitigate. Participants practice applying the techniques in an exercise designed to highlight their purpose and process.
