Adjusting Foresight, Intelligence and Inferring for Different Types of Systems
This concluding chapter begins with a comparison between the public strategic foresight systems that were presented in the structure part of this book. Then it summarizes the views of the nine strategic foresight experts who were interviewed. It continues presenting a possible model for a centrally steered strategic foresight system, based on some of the views from the interviews, and it ends with my methodological conclusion, which synthesizes the book’s systemic themes, with the inferring and foresight themes of the book. The purpose of this synthesis is to conclude the usability of each of the futures domain’s methods from the point of view of different types of systems that exist. But before this I make some conclusions on the characteristics of the national strategic foresight systems that were presented in the structure part.
