Everyone talks about Moore’s Law, but the lesser known Wright’s Law actually gives us a better tool for understanding how technologies develop exponentially and create rippling effects of change through markets and societies. Start here with a new foundation for more incisive thinking about the future.
The experience of 2020 has strained social systems, upended the global economy, and challenged some of our deepest assumptions and long held beliefs. Here’s why it should also be shaking up the way leaders think about forecasting and building for the future.
Identifying and reading weak signals are foundational and highly transferable skills for the leader as futurist. Learn what to look for and how to make the most of these early indicators of emerging opportunities as we apply the practice to a quick read of contemporary trends.
Your turn. Take your new skill for a spin and spot some weak signals in the (virtual) wild. Then, we’ll turn things around and consider the convergence of weak signals in the past that created some of today’s striking technological and cultural artifacts.
