Describes future‐mapping, an innovative process for creative strategic thinking and decision making. The idea consists of imagining already living in an ideal, successful future, describing it in detail as if it were real, and then “remembering”, step‐by‐step, how it was arrived at. Not only is the future ideal mapped out systematically, but the steps to making it happen are likewise mapped out. Future‐mapping has been developed through direct application in a wide variety of organizations since 1989. Provides three brief case examples and an example of its power in teamworking. Outlines how to carry out future‐mapping at each stage, with explanations of techniques, and background research. Defines some of the benefits of this way of thinking and decision making and describes its key operating assumptions.
