Foresight 2030: Conversations about the decade ahead

Advanced Tools & Techniques for Organizational Change


The Advanced Strategy Center is pleased to announce the publication of Foresight 2030, an important look at the issues that will influence the decade ahead. Advanced strategy founder and director Douglas Griffen is the author of the book and utilized the Advanced strategy Lab technique to facilitate peer thought leaders to share their views on the decade ahead. 

Foresight 2030: Conversations About The Decade Ahead looks at the influences that will impact the

decade from now through the end of 2029. The author suggests that this may be the most

consequential decade of our lives. It’s off to a pretty profound start, wouldn’t you say? During 2020

and early 2021, a series of online thought leadership sessions were convened with some 121

"Foresighters" that provided thought leadership and insights about subjects that would surely affect

the decade ahead—the role of technology, the future of work, how education would change, the

direction of news, media and information and even the American Lifestyle and the elusive American

Dream. An ambitious project already when launched in January 2020, within the first 90 days

 everything changed—a global pandemic, an increasingly divided American political scene and a

massive economic downturn. It became an unexpected, but ideal. lens from which our participants

could consider how the decade ahead might change.

Douglas S. Griffen is the author and facilitator of the online sessions using a technique called the 

Advanced Strategy Lab that allows participants to provide candid and emotional responses about

important topics in an anonymous but simultaneous fashion. The result is a shared conversation that

will engage readers about the decade ahead, the new choices they will have, and how the very

landscape of America will be different. Griffen provides historical context, personal perspective and a refreshing writing style to convey the conversations of others while his is having a conversation with you. It is meant to engage you about the future. And why not? It’s your decade as well.

The Foresight 2030 book is available through the Amazon Marketplace. Order your own copy here 

The Advanced Strategy Center is also developing an interactive leadership workshop in 2022 based on the book principles and how leadership will evolve in organizations in the decade ahead. For further information on the workshop please contact Douglas Griffen at
