Abstract:There is almost unanimous agreement among futurists that without strong support from the top of the organization, a futures group cannot survive. But it is difficult to enlist top management's support for futurism: tunnel vision and shortsightedness (the antitheses of futurist thinking), carefully managed and nurtured, have, in the past, been forces propelling executives to the top.
