We support our clients to deliver futures insights, capability and change.

What we do

The SOIF team has decades of experience in working with clients on strategic foresight and futures projects, across the public, non-profit, and commercial sectors.

We see foresight as a part of a transformative process that connects head, heart and hands to create meaningful change.

In our work with clients, we also ensure that capability is transferred to the team that we are working with.

Get in touch

Our clients and partners are people who are in a position to drive change for the better.

Supporting you to use futures, foresight and participatory approaches

One of the distinctive parts of SOIF’s work is that we draw on a wide range of tools and methods to tailor our approach to your needs. We are agnostic about the ‘how’ and ‘what’, but we are prescriptive about the overall journey. 

Our proven four-stage process helps you through each step of the way–from scoping and horizon scanning, to ordering and sense-making, to identifying implications and integrating outcomes into processes and systems. The second half of the process is where the impact is. 

How we can help

  • Horizon scanning
  • Futures analysis and scenarios
  • Futures workshops and vision development
