Prospect Studio takes leaders and their teams into the future to explore possibilities, simulate pathways, build resilience, make clear decisions and take action.
We help you to create vision and build agency through each of the areas below, offering a range of services from customized visioning programs for organizations, to self-guided resources, and one-to one and group support.
Collaborative Vision Creation - ranging from 6-12 months these programs begin with research - a deep dive into the context of your work and organization, your partners and other stakeholders. This is followed by explorations of potential futures through Learning Journeys and scenario planning, and then a series of collaborative design charrettes to craft the vision and plans for action.
Leading into the Future - group and individual coaching to support leadership through sustained change.
Inspiration Lab - experiences and artifacts to support exploration of possible futures.
We begin our engagements with a process of listening, based on a combination of ethnographic research and appreciative inquiry. We want to understand the current state and recent history in order to design for the habitual roadblocks, identify the emerging bright spots, and build a coalition of allies.
Horizon Scanning & Weak Signals
We also consider the wider field and interesting analogous field examples. Using trend and demographic research, and physical and virtual learning journeys, we explore and assess the ways in which the field and the local context are changing, including the 'weak signals' of change and emerging ideas.
Collaborative Vision Creation
Our work is inherently collaborative. We believe that diverse groups, embodying a range of perspectives and experience create more robust and resilient futures, and are better able to address unintended consequences.
Exploring Scenarios - we create vivid scenarios of possible futures, and engaging processes for exploring them. We take the results of these explorations and distil them into final drafts of the idea future
Stress-testing Emerging Ideas - we design group processes to vet the draft ideas
Crafting Artifacts - we create artifacts to capture the spirit of the vision
Making it happen
