Executive Education Workshop: Science Fiction as Digital Strategy

The pace of technological evolution sometimes makes reality feel more like fiction and vice versa. While the conventional tools of strategy are helpful in prioritizing actions for the short term, they are insufficient for understanding where we are headed, given the medium and long-term effects of technological change. In this workshop, we will practice SciFi Prototyping, a story-making technique, to explore emerging and fast-changing technologies and draw the consequences for present-day strategy-making.
