A friend of the
CEO's daughter:

Questions from our
CEO's daughter.

Prof. Bernd Thomsen regularly glimpses the future with his young daughter for the Handelsblatt. She was only three years old when our CEO began answering her probing questions (which she asked when she wasn't playing hide-and-seek with her friend) within the business and financial newspaper.

Futurecast

Here’s the beef! Our video podcasts cut to the chase.

The Futurecast #Zukunftsgespräche is a video podcast that features industry leaders from business, politics, and society. Each guest steps into the future with us. Futurecasts are 2 minutes and 50 seconds short, based on the year 2050, and offer concise summaries of hours-worth of discussion: Here’s the beef!


Whitepaper

Black on white.
Our whitepaper.

Open the door to our library of whitepapers: Unlock insightful perspectives, global knowledge, and answers to shaping a better future. Some things can only be achieved when we all work together. Working together requires the exchange of information. We’re happy to take the first step. Find everything from the perfect HR strategy to solutions in times of crisis. Enjoy!

FutureAssets®– The heartbeat of our insights.

Our FutureAssets® began as weak signals. Over the last four decades, we have identified, analyzed, monitored, and validated them using our 7-stage methodology. We were then able to determine which seedlings deserved the title FutureAsset® and would grow to become sturdy oak trees. Our FutureAssets® retain relevance for at least 50 years. They assist us in acquiring the knowledge of tomorrow for the success of our clients today.

Metaversity.

Interest in a digital parallel world, in real time.

Digital clones of everyone and everything. Fashionable as RayBan, these glasses will not only replace smartphones, but also blur reality and fiction: The metaverse will revolutionize the world and shape a new one: Students will be able to talk to Caesar, colleagues will appear as holograms in meetings, and designers will help you shop from the comfort of your own home.

Lifelong, practice-oriented, granular-level education.

In the future, people won’t pursue a singular profession, but five or more. Skills and abilities will become paramount, replacing the necessity of diplomas. Education will be more holistic and oriented towards practical knowledge. Concentrating on concise, specialized training meets economic requirements, but does it foster personal development? (Important for a complex world.)

Abilitization.
Moved Life.

Almost everything happens in motion.

From turning pages to scrolling: This changed the primary movement of the hand. In the future, though, it will be normal for the whole body to be in motion. As mobility increases, movement will become a peripheral concern. Cars are an important consideration – Many are still drawn to their outward appearance. In the future, however, their interior function will take priority. Coffee cars (instead of Starbucks on the corner) is just one example.

Skills associated with femininity are essential leadership competencies.

Our ever-changing world requires new competencies, skill, and abilities: particularly collaboration and conflict resolution. Pro-social tendencies, such as empathy, are still cultivated through gender-specific upbringing. Regardless of gender, these skills are becoming increasingly important in management.

Shebility.
Iconic Health.

Health is the new religion.

The most intangible commodity is becoming more and more important. And holistic approaches are gaining popularity. The top five: Fresh air (5), nutrition (4), interest in and knowledge of health (3), exercise (2), and happiness (1). Health creates a sense of purpose. From repairing medicine to, on a personal level, generating empowerment and proaction.

Responsibility is on the rise.

More and more people are adopting a change in attitude – seeing the importance of individual action and how it affects the greater good. Responsibility has gained a more prominent position in the value chain. Companies solely invested in their own self-interest and internal growth will face problems down the line. Those who commit to positive change will come out on top.
