LIID designs High Impact Future Labs to help COMPANIES? CITIES? UNIVERSITIES and CULTURAL PLACES tackle their future challenges with most beneficial foresight research methods and formats, and actually “craft the future” along the research.
FUTURE LAB PURPOSE: Our future labs can take different orientations and aims such as to help organizations to redefine their strategy, offer or purpose; innovate; train and open the mind of their team; mobilize internally and externally (future diplomacy); develop their local and global ecosystems; communicate; boost their thought leadership and influence; or support their investment strategy. The future lab process and method is adapted to fully serve the purpose. It can last from a day with a keynote or masterclass to open the future, to several months or years.
POSSIBLE METHODS: weak-signal research and future trends analysis, co-design of inspirational scenarios (including opportunities to grasp), conventional and customized foresight methods (scenario-planning, design fiction, etc.), future narrative, future world-building, future project design, creative prototyping, experiential staging, future task-force..
FORMATS (see examples in the video): keynotes, masterclasses, future trend report, foresight executive summary, future oriented brand content and publication, workshop, open-labs, research group, think-tank, future camp, future kit, creative prototype, exhibition, future expedition, pedagogic modules, academic and cultural projects, etc.. The formats are chosen according to the purpose of the future lab, the profile of people and stake-holder participating, and the means available to optimize benefits and sustainable impacts.
According to the method and the size of the lab, we train your teams and/or partner with complementary independent entities or structures (eg. web, digital, innovation event agencies, schools, cultural places, etc.) to be chosen locally.
