Summary

The role of the futurist in government is to help decision makers link the emerging environment to action. This helps organizations be ready for and benefit from change. In practice, government futurists: identify significant trends and emerging issues of relevance to the organization's responsibilities; explore long-range consequences of decisions and actions; anticipate alternative futures; learn how to adapt today to these futures; imagine preferred futures; balance the needs of present generations with the needs of future generations; develop and design policies, programs and legislation.
