Strategic thinking, with a futures perspective, in an international environment

From Ulf Boman, Partner and Futurist at Kairos Future and Course director at ICFS

ICSince 2014, we have introduced a new profession: The International Certified Future Strategist (ICFS)

Together with a consortium of leading European futurists, we have developed the profession and the course program leading up to certification. We are now happy to see the program filling up for the spring 2016. We still have positions left and would like to encourage you to take part in this program.

The ICFS is maybe the first in-depth program where you will learn theory as well as practice for business environment analysis, future and scenario studies, vision building, strategy development and action. In short: from words to action – from future to strategy.

In the course, we link future with strategy in a hands-on way. Through lectures, in discussions with peers and through dedicated home assignments, you will acquire the knowledge and skills for leading future and strategy work within you organization.

The 2016 program starts 27 January 2015 in Stockholm, Sweden, and will run throughout the spring. The program includes four modules of three days, with home assignments in-between. For more information, check out

”The course has particular strengths such as the specific examples, the ability to ask questions and receive detailed answers. Moreover, the practical work during the course gave me a more clear ability to understand all the tools.” Dimitrios Chelidonis, Thessalian Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Greece)

The International Certified Future Strategist was developed with support from the Leonardo da Vinci program within EU’s Life Long Learning program.
