At Corset Economy we started out with an idea and a systems framework to make sense of the rapidly changing world around us. In Scenario Planning we refer to this as a VUCA world – volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous – and if this doesn’t describe the last while we don’t know what does!

After 20+ years of working for major global organizations and corporations on scenario projects exploring global systems as diverse as the future of aviation and shipping, health and the home, to regulation and intellectual property rights, and finance, we concluded that the global system was changing. We’ve distilled all of that learning, insight and expert analysis on the biggest disruptive forces and trends into our vision of what is happening to our global economy.

This framework is meant to help organisations, policymakers, academics and Joan Public anticipate some different ways in which the future could unfold, because prospection – the act of looking forward in time or considering the future – enables us to come back to the present armed with new insights that enable us to do something. Knowledge is power.
