Reports of Future-of


Mission:

Bring together applied experts and leaders to better understand challenges and opportunities in an uncertain future. Expert analysis on the big innovation and leadership challenges ahead.

The Model:
Each quarterly report will tackle one big question (~ 15–20 pages). Members will pre-order the report, in exchange for context.

The opportunity:
  • Metrics
    • abundance of quantitive data, not enough qualitative conclusions
    • Thoughtful (and brand aware) negotiation between quant and qual
  • Insights
    • noise in the insights space, not enough context
    • self serving reports: research backs into a known conclusion
  • Stakes are higher than ever before
    • leaders make decisions for an increasingly unknown future

Previous experience:

TATA Communication
AI, Augmentation, Intellectual Diversity and The Future of Work In collaboration with Ken Goldberg (UC Berkley), Dialogue and Gershoni

  • Writing
  • recruitment and facilitation of 2 think tanks
  • ethnography and insights
