The EDHEC Chair for Foresight, Innovation and Transformation has been created to:
Making organizations FIT to drive desirable futures for people, prosperity and planet
We work with our partners across 4 axes:
Self-assess your future preparedness with our Future FITness benchmarking model. Monitoring your Future FITness score over time helps to improve and to align your capabilities with the environmental complexity, volatility, hostility and your own strategic ambition. We regularly run benchmarking conferences and offer also benchmarking as a service.
Develop your talent by attending one of our courses on strategic foresight, scenario-based planning, business wargaming, systematic trend management, and innovation and transformation in the digital era.
The EDHEC FIT Chair proposes Open and Customised Programmes.
Compare your Future FITness with other leading organizations in our network. We share best practices on trend radars, AI-based scanning tools and new planning and strategizing approaches. Our Future FITness model includes five interdependent capabilities. We offer you the opportunity to benchmark against the leading global firms. Here are the key capabilities that future prepared firms need.
Transformation Is always a team sport. We help you become a transformational leader in your organization and also run every year a collaborative project which integrates different organizations across an industry ecosystem to drive transformational change.
You may be confronted with threatening shifts, which if not managed efficiently can destabilize business models, organizational design, and their existence. We believe that transformational change can be best understood from different vantage points and best tackled with partners.
“Future of” projects are an innovative platform provided by the FIT Chair that bring together various partners (stakeholders) to jointly explore and shape the future of the industry. They provide the ability for multiple companies to create a forward view, identify different scenarios and alternative industry strategies and provide solutions to common challenges.
Benefits for the Partnering Companies
