General Information about Futurist for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.
The term “futurist” usually refers to people who try to understand future patterns, and are sometimes called “trend analysts.” These people can be authors, consultants, thinkers, organizational leaders, or other professionals who engage in future thinking and use their expertise to advise organizations on matters related to diverse global trends, possible scenarios, emerging market opportunities, or risk management. This type of futurism should not be confounded with the early 20th century art movement called futurism. Futurists are often visionaries, corporate strategists, policy analysts, planners, foresight consultants, marketers, forecasters, prediction market developers, road mappers, operations researchers, investment managers, or future-oriented individuals. Such individuals are very diverse, having highly different academic backgrounds, including anthropology, mathematics, philosophy, sociology, or economics. Several authors have become recognized as futurists. They research new trends, particularly in technology, and come up with astute observations, conclusions, and predictions.
For business leaders, the ability to think like a futurist has the power to transform and improve businesses. Futurism plays an important role when companies are trying to develop new business models or new products and services. It also plays a fundamental role when trying to reinvent marketing plans and innovative partnerships and to recreate organizational structures. While there are specific sectors within companies that are inherently focused on futurism, in fact every team member could benefit from thinking outside the box and being open to new possibilities that a futurist-oriented thinking can provide.
