Is Your Knowledge Useful?
We have reading lists, newsletter subscriptions, data feeds and platforms streaming us premium content daily. Are you effectively absorbing/understanding/analyzing AND applying it to your professional field?
Clients often express surprise during working groups as we discuss a topic familiar to them but bring them to a new understanding. We do this using different tools and models designed to frame layers of data into different perspectives that drive thought creation.

Then I challenge you to use our sensing model Sensing the Future of Warfare (visionforesightstrategy.com) and quickly relook each article, mentally fill in the layers/lenses, and then note your takeaway.
