In this article for the World Economic Forum, Roger Spitz, President of Techistential and Chair of Disruptive Futures Institute, San Francisco. The article discusses how foresight methodologies are becoming increasingly important in planning for future disruption due to the world’s growing complexity. It highlights the concept of systemic disruption, which refers to the cascade of constant disruptions across our interconnected world, making it difficult to predict future events. The term “metaruptions” describes a multidimensional family of systemic disruptions with widespread and self-perpetuating effects. The article emphasises the value of scenario development as a methodology in Climate and Strategic Foresight over prediction, advocating for preparation rather than attempting to predict an uncertain future.
