From the begin­ning of the Nextsens­ing Project, I planned to invite a select and diverse corps of lead­ing-edge thinkers to become NextSensors.

NextSen­sors”, of course, is a neol­o­gism designed to describe the spe­cial indi­vid­u­als who will soon be deep­en­ing and enrich­ing what our project can do for the ben­e­fit of oth­ers. Now that we have com­plet­ed the ini­tial build­ing blocks to ampli­fy the project, I am delight­ed to name today the first 16 NextSensors.

Each of these indi­vid­u­als has com­mit­ted to work indi­vid­u­al­ly and col­lec­tive­ly to improve the way lead­ers think about the future and to help them and their organ­i­sa­tions devel­op fore­sens­ing abil­i­ties regard­ing emerg­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and poten­tial strate­gic initiatives.

Specif­i­cal­ly, our project mis­sion is to help devel­op insights into one of the most daunt­ing chal­lenges today — how to think in new ways about the present in order to bet­ter under­stand the future.

Soon, you will see con­tri­bu­tions from our NextSen­sors — from news head­lines I might have missed to spe­cial sur­veys we con­struct, from mini-case stud­ies to guest blogs and sto­ries that speak to the search for “next” as they wit­ness it. More­over, I have told each of our new project mem­bers that “Job One” is to think of the best ways for them to add to the intel­lec­tu­al cap­i­tal of the project.

More NextSen­sors will soon be announced. This is an excit­ing new devel­op­ment, and I am delight­ed to be a mem­ber of such a dis­tin­guished group of on-the-edge thinkers. Wel­come, one and all!
