The Radar Collection is built on the core premise of reimagining and reinventing the art & science of futures intelligence, by providing multidisciplinary foresight, with critical analytics that facilitate sensemaking. The futures is no longer certain or a straightline projection of what has past. The landscape in front of us is catalyzed by highly diverse forces, stakeholders and drivers of change.
Foresight & forecast need to recalibrate their frameworks, and build sensitivity to world’s deepening complexities and widening gaps. Radar Collection Reports strive to provide a balance between making acute sense of the future complexities and actionable insights to mitigate present uncertainties.
