Institute for the Future

Contributed by Daragh Byrne to Centers, Institutions + Organizations on 03 Mar 2014

IFTF brings people together to make the future—today. Whether you’re a strategic leader in a large organization or a community leader in a struggling neighborhood or a netizen who wants to mobilize global crowds, we have practical tools, research, and programs that turn foresight into the critical new insights that ultimately lead to action. As an independent, non-profit research organization with a 45-year track record of helping all kinds of organizations make the futures they want, IFTF's core research staff and creative design studio work together to provide practical foresight for a world undergoing rapid change. IFTF has pioneered tools and methods for building foresight ever since its founding days. Co-founder Olaf Helmer was the inventor of the Delphi Method, and early projects developed cross-impact analysis and scenario tools. Today, IFTF is methodologically agnostic, with a brimming toolkit of foresight methodologies.
