Unpacking strategic foresight: A practice approach
Sarpong, David; Maclean, Mairi
This paper unpacks strategic foresight by exploring the creative evaluation and reconfiguration of sources of potentialities into resources and productive outcomes. Placing emphasis on the everyday practices of organizational members' positioned lower down the organizational hierarchy, we identified prospective sensemaking, multi-lateral conversations about future possibilities and limits in the present, and the application of future-related techniques and methodologies as embedded organizing practices that gave form to the patterns of 'foresightful' actions observed in practice. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
