Flash Foresight offers seven radical principles you need to transform your business today. From internationally renowned technology forecaster Daniel Burrus—a leading consultant to Google, Proctor & Gamble, IBM, and many other Fortune 500 firms—with John David Mann, co-author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Go-Giver, comes this systematic, easy-to-implement method for identifying new business opportunities and solving difficult problems in the twenty-first century marketplace.
Burrus (Technotrends) has made a career of predicting the future of technological change, and in his latest work, he maintains that you too can develop "flash foresight" a "burst of insight about the future that produces a new and radically different way of doing something that will open up invisible opportunities and solve seemingly impossible problems." Burrus argues that we can enhance our intuitive sixth sense through systematic processes used by educators, scientists, governments, and companies like Crocs, Starbucks, and Amazon. "It's not guesswork or psychic ability," writes Burrus. "It's purely a question of knowing how and where to look, and taking the time to do the looking." Case studies bring the idea of flash foresight to life, such as how Netflix redefined the home movie industry or how Singapore envisioned its future and transformed itself from a tiny city with no natural resources into a sleek center of global commerce. The ability to see trends and identify future opportunities is a skill anyone can benefit from and Burrus's latest work is a valuable introduction to the fundamentals.
