Beyond the future …. lies our imagination. The future cannot be predicted; neither is it predetermined. When is the future? The future is at this moment, tomorrow and thereafter, often stretching beyond an era in time yet to befall what lies outside of the everyday planning, strategic management and intervention scope. The future approaches at different speeds for different business environments. We can thus shape the future to create landscapes from our imagination. To thrive in the unknown, even the short-term unknown, we need future fit leaders.
