We offer a wide range of multilingual, digital, telephone and face-to-face, proprietary and custom-built public and private foresight surveys built on appreciative inquiry principles:

Internal surveys
Organizations depend on anticipating the future to be able to meet tomorrow's competitive threats and seize new opportunities. So, how well are you, and they, doing in anticipating the future?

  • How does your organization anticipate the future and use it to advantage?
  • Does it worry more about yesterday and today than shaping tomorrow?
  • Does it know how advanced its thinking and actions are versus traditional and new organizations vying for its stakeholders' attention?

We can help you answer these questions through our unique, pre-created and quick to undertake organizational surveys.

Citizen foresight
We now offer an ultra-low-cost, integrated and public/private invite process that allows:

  • Any member to invite non-members to give their input to their questions or issues on a pay-as-you-go basis (< one US dollar per invite)
  • Any client to do the same for free with up to 1000 invites at a time sent to experts etc.
  • Any client to post a given URL on their main site or elsewhere to attract the public's response to their question

Responses are set as 'anonymous' or 'named' by the client administrator or paying member? We can post any set of questions using our pre-defined or your custom-built quantitative or qualitative templates. Response interpretation can be automated too using our new Extractor software to do narrative analysis and instant summarization of the input.
