Basic Values Charts

Our Basic Values Charts have been much appreciated. There are two charts*, one centering on human relations and the other on the world around us. A number of clients desire more time to work with values. "Values that have to do with human relations could we have talked about more if there had been time." They can be used to develop cooperation in leadership groups, in personal development and in vision development.

At The Vision Center for Futures Creation we specialize in helping all types of organizations make decisions and plan for the future. Our process includes a variety of tools and processes in foresight, both qualitative and quantitative. We have knowledge in a combination of areas: systems, emerging trends, macro trends, values orientation, analysis and scenario writing.


What are scenarios?

Scenarios are narratives or stories placed in the future which are based upon integrated, quantitative and qualitative information. Scenarios are written for three or more, realistic, possible futures, using the same variables but based on different premises. Scenario writing is growing as a tool because they capture the complexity that more linear tools are unable to handle.


The advantages of scenarios

Give clarity in uncertain times where low predictability reigns.
Integrate diverse information and knowledge so that they present a living, functional picture.
Insure against missing but important changes that happen out side of an organizations area of expertise.
Focus the company or organization on possibilities rather than problems.
