De-Blinker Your Thinking

Chaos, Complexity, unknown-unknowns

How to spot and prepare for industry-altering trends


Why it is crucial for business executives 

Getting a clearer understanding of:

  • Change is difficult vs NOT changing is FATAL
  • Change is not coming… it is already here
  • Your ability to differentiate between change signals and noise in your industry

What is in it for you? 

A future thinking process helps executives:

  • Understand how a how-to-tool can demystify the future, practically
  • Understand how to de-blinker thinking and identify change implications that will derail your business
  • Develop clear appropriate strategic responses to changing trends
  • How to stay ahead of the competition and become the rainmaker and innovator in your industry/sandbox
  • To think probabilistically –stupid decisions in business, as in medicine, based on wrong predictions kill profits or growth


  • Your industries train driving change has left the station, but it’s not clear where it will end.  It is important to be able to predict where it is going, if we are to use it (jump onboard) along the way
  • Some of the chaotic future that is impacting business include the following:
    • Technological singularity (technology evolution)
    • Transhumanism
    • Geopolitical shifts & hegemony
    • Bioterrorism & cyber warfare
    • Resource competition
