Barbara is a no-nonsense Dutch futurist and one of the few scholars specialized in how top-managers perceive the future in the information they read (weak signals).Barbara goes on when other futurists stop: AFTER the exciting-scary videos of technological wonders. She does not leave you in turmoil, but she will help you with practical, actionable insights. You will learn how to become sensitive to disruption, to implement a lightweight foresight process and to infuse major decisions with foresight data.When you're about to make a major executive decision, but are not (yet) sure how then Barbara is the futurist for you. You can shape the future under two conditions. Firstly, you envision at least three possible futures. Secondly, you innovate their way out of the present to survive and thrive in each future.
