Futures Design Thinking: Speculative Design, Strategic Foresight and other ways to respond to the future

As the craft of Design continues to evolve and require more strategic thinking, we need additional tools and frameworks to address today’s greatest political, ethical, environmental and cultural challenges. What does the world look like 7-10 years from now? How can we properly assess the challenges we will eventually face? And what role will Design and Designers play in that future? As both a Design Director at McKinsey & Co. and the founder of the Design Futures Initiative, a not-for-profit organization with over 40 chapters worldwide, Phil will discuss examples of how to apply Speculative Design & Foresight as strategic principles for understanding the future and beyond.
