Business futurology: Anticipating to lead change

The ability to anticipate the future in organisations is based on what is known as business sociology, which involves not so much predicting the future, but allowing oneself to imagine what can happen so that companies, institutions, entrepreneurs, etc. are able to create their own future oriented towards success.

The factors that come into play are varied and include elements that force a rational and emotional interpretation of the market and its adaptive response to constant change. As Richard Thaler, winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Economics, pointed out, we live in the economy of emotions. These determine the consequences, positive or negative, and force us all to play the role of game changers in our environment.
