Future Thinking Bercume Associates

A Simulation for Visioning, Planning, and Decision-Making


In a recent post-recession global survey, CEOs stated that more than 89% of organizations are undergoing major changes, and that those changes are more complex than we have ever witnessed. To compete and win in this economy, companies must be more nimble, decisive, and more adaptable than they may realize.

Stepping outside the status quo and exploring “future thinking” is the first step toward shifting mindsets.

The “Future Game” is a learning simulation set in the Australian Outback that guides participants through a series of critical decisions impacting the future. Teams will produce one of four possible futures that reward collaboration and innovation while highlighting the dangers of status quo thinking. Time will be included for participants to relate their Outback experience to the business challenges they face at work, with the goal of developing an agile mindset to navigate rapid change.
