Next Generation Organisations deserve Next Generation guidance. That’s the founding principle of The Future Shapers; a global network of thought-leaders, innovation practitioners, business leaders, academics and speakers who have come together with the aim of helping businesses and other organisations to shape and create innovative futures.

Emerging technologies and innovative new business models are transforming life, business and the global economy at unprecedented speeds. As digital technologies reshape the modern world, businesses established in less fluid times are having to make increasingly complex and critical decisions against the ticking clock of change.

A Boston Consulting Group (BCG) report in 2015 revealed that 79% of respondents saw innovation as a top three priority. The BCG figures reflect an earlier report in 2010 from McKinsey which identified that the majority of executives saw innovation as being critical for their business; with 84% seeing innovation as being important to growth strategy. Interestingly that same survey revealed that just 6% of executives were satisfied with innovation performance. Sadly, it seems that this gulf between perceived need and actuality still remains.

Addressing that perception gulf was the prime driver behind building The Future Shapers platform. Quite simply, acknowledging that innovation is a game-changer is one thing, knowing how to build a culture which sets innovation at its heart is quite another. So, our community of interest acts as a filter for the huge volume of information surrounding innovation. Looking beyond the alarmist headlines and buzzwords used to describe the innovation world, we offer our followers and members insights, analysis, and tools to help them tackle the ever-evolving innovation challenge.

Working with the leading entrepreneurs, thinkers, practitioners, innovators, and investors we assist our followers and members to make sense of the changing world. Across all facets of innovation, we research, curate and develop thought-leadership for our community of interest.
