Open Source Foresight Tools
A few years ago, I made all of our research, tools and frameworks that we developed at the Future Today Institute free and open source. Our work at FTI is now licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution- NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. What this means is that you and your organization are able to use and build on FTI’s work, and to distribute it with attribution.
I’ve spent nearly 15 years researching, modeling, testing and refining the Future Today Institute’s forecasting methodology and tools, which are used in hundreds of companies and government agencies and as part of college courses all around the world. I made the decision to open our work to the public because I’m concerned that too few organizations are making long-term sacrifices for short-term gains.
Part of our mission at the Future Today Institute is to democratize the tools of futurists in order to empower everyone to actively plan for tomorrow. To that end, we make our strategic thinking frameworks and tools freely available to enable anyone to create their own preferred futures. You can find a few of them below. The rest are available on the FTI website.
