Navigating Public Policy Making
By Tuomo Kuosa
Strategic foresight is traditionally associated with the military and politics. In his book, Tuomo Kuosa goes beyond this, developing a method of generating analyses of alternative futures and strategies, based on available intelligence and foreknowledge.
This practice can be applied to companies, business sectors, national and trans-national agencies of all descriptions, and to all aspects of public policy making.
In The Evolution of Strategic Foresight the author uses examples from 30 countries, involving key experts in the field, to illustrate the theory underpinning the employment of strategic foresight. Its practice is explained in terms of structure, process, and knowledge domains. Methodologies and systems are examined, along with how strategic foresight can be used to produce better knowledge and be more effectively linked to policy making.
Kuosa’s findings are invaluable to scholars, students, long-range, public policy and urban planners, analysts, risk assessment experts, and consultants, managers and decision makers.
