Abstract:

"Future Search explores a promising way for enabling diverse groups of people with a stake in an organization or community to plan their own future. This event brings a "whole system" into the room to explore participants' past, present, and desired future as a back-drop to action planning." "In a future search, people seek common ground rather than resolve conflicts; focus on the future rather than solve old problems; generate broad commitment to a common goal; identify creative strategies; and take responsibility for action."

"This practical guide offers principles, techniques, and examples for running successful future search conferences. In this updated and expanded edition, the authors have placed special emphasis on their underlying philosophy and theory, showing how these translate into simple, effective actions that most people can easily learn."--Jacket.
