What Previous Participants Said:

“One wonders if Dr. Peter Bishop realizes how much change he truly influences when he conducts the Certificate in Strategic Foresight course at the University of Houston …. I left with more than I anticipated. We expected this: a foundation in framing, research, and forecasting techniques, visioning and planning approaches, and tactics for action within our organizations …. But there’s more. The instructors are superb, and fellow students are dynamic and hail from a range of backgrounds and locales, both international and US. In courses designed this well, there’s often a synergy, even a gestalt of sorts that lasts until the course ends. The effects of Dr. Bishop’s class, however, are ongoing. Many of those involved in the course have significantly changed their careers, their positions, their influence over planning, thanks to the powerful tools gained in the course. We made permanent connections (always good for support in the world of foresight) and important connections for future opportunities. All of this goodness, CEU credits, and a certificate for the wall to lend credibility to your methods. The only negative of the course? You’ll want more. It’s addictive – so I’d consider the 2-year online course if you’re up for it.”
-Civilian Manager, U.S. Department of Defense

“As a private consultant, I am often asked by my clients to assist in developing a variety of strategic and operational plans. The Strategic Foresight Certificate gave me a wide variety of additional tools and techniques that I can utilize to develop scenarios of possible futures for my clients. Clients have found this helpful in mapping out the possibilities that the future can bring and more importantly it allows them to position themselves to influence the type of future they wish to create.”
-Alain Rabeau, Senior Consultant, The Intersol Group

“Strategic Foresight has helped me structure futures thinking and futures strategies into a curriculum that can be used for middle school students that will prepare these future world leaders to anticipate and cope with change, and to empower them with the ability to create solutions for a preferable future.”
