Futurism - also known as "Future Studies" and "Foresight Studies" - is the systematic exploration and evaluation of potential future scenarios.

Evaluation criteria for scenarios include:

  • How credible is the scenario?
  • How attractive is the scenario (after any initial "future shock" has been set aside)?
  • What steps can be taken to prepare for the scenario?
  • What steps can be taken to increase (or decrease) the likelihood of that scenario?
