Strategic Foresight: Using Signals to Anticipate and Lead Change

Envision’s directors have organized themselves into four key teams to scan for signals of change in trends, events and choices likely to impact the future of Greater Green Bay. We welcome interested community members to join our efforts, enjoying hands-on learning of Strategic Foresight tools and skills, and contributing to our area’s preferred future. Help us drive the Greater Green Bay community purposefully, through study, discussion, publication and presentation. Currently we focus on these four areas:
