"Leading firms understand that superior performance is based on the ability to embrace uncertainty"

René Rohrbeck

Director at the EDHEC Chair for Foresight, Innovation & Transformation

 

Mission

Our research is driven by the belief that organisations as we have built them for stable environments are ill equipped for the era of relentless changes that they face today. Change creates challenges, but also opportunities. The ability to embrace and profit from change  will determine the winners from the losers in the 21st century. Over more than a decade we have studied organisations that profit from change, developed a maturity model for the future preparedness of organisations and developed a comprehensive set of practices for enabling foresight, innovation and transformation (FIT).

Our passion is to make organizations FIT to drive desirable futures.
