About a year ago, Prof. Dr. habil. Heiko von der Gracht, Chair of Futures Studies at the School of International Business and Entrepreneurship (SIBE) at Steinbeis University, together with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Evi Hartmann, Chair of Supply Chain Management at Friedrich Alexander University Nuremberg, launched the course “Successfully Planning and Managing the Future” at the Virtual University of Bavaria (VHB).
In the course, the basics of foresight (corporate foresight) are taught and enriched with examples from business practice, as well as the private environment of the participants. In designing the course, one central idea was central: those who know the methods of futurology hold the tools for shaping their own future in their hands.
Participants of the free course will learn the three phases of the strategic foresight process (Scanning, Foresight, Transfer) in detail during 15 hours. Methodologically, the focus is then on the scenario technique with many practical examples of decision-making processes in the current economy.
The relevance of the topic and the need for it is made clear by the number of more than 1,700 participants from all sectors of the economy who have taken part so far. Although the course language is German, participants come from all over the world to further develop their knowledge in the field.
