This book explains that to develop vision you must sharpen two key skills: the ability to see things early--spotting the first hints of change on the horizon and the power to connect the dots--turning those clues into a gripping story about the future of your organization and industry. Packed with stories and practices, this resource provides proven techniques for looking ahead and exploring many plausible futures, including the author's trademarked FuturePriming process, which helps distinguish signal from noise. You will discover how to: tap into your imagination and open yourself to the unconventional; become better at seeing things early; frame the big-picture view that provides direction for the future; and communicate your vision in a way that engages others and provokes action. --"@en ;
