    This was an excellent book about how to take advantage of the pockets of certainty that we have regarding the future Burrus does a great job of pointing out different trends that are sure to continue into the future such as increased mobility, bandwidth, and convergence of features that used to be standalone products into a single product to use as a way of predicting where the future will lead.Probably the best takeaway from this book that I had was to remember that when it comes to planning fo [...]

    I heard Mr Burrus at an IT service management conference this year Pink15 He was exceptionally interesting so I picked up his book His ideas on hard and soft trending, getting rid of rear view mirrors, stop worrying about information and constantly driving home the pace of change requires us to constantly change were really thoughtful I appreciated his insight regarding less cooperation and collaboration He makes a compelling argument for changes to our education system, why competition has to [...]

  5. Bill Hunter says:
    Not sure what all the hype is about Some good points but I found it clunky and a lot of the concepts in the taxonomy presented are reverse engineered into very shallow real life examples.Burrus is obviously very accomplished and I don t think the book conveys what he s all about very week which is a pity.The book spends 80% of it s time on some pretty obvious technological foresights and only 20% on the art of strategic foresight itself Would have loved to have seen actual methodological analys [...]

  6. Mbogo J says:
    These books with sentence length titles promising heaven are a notorious lot It s like they know that if they don t sell in the title, no one is going to buy them Not forgetting they rehash the obvious and give them catchy names and call that hot air insight I normally give them a wide berth.With this one, kept suggesting it to me based on my previous reads until I finally gave up and read it It is an amazing book It does suffer from the follies of its cousins in rehashing the obvious but its ce [...]

  7. Dunrie says:
    I heard Burrus speak at the Vistage Michigan CEO Summit in September The book overlaps with his talk a fair bit, and is a good refresher if you ve heard him speak and introduction if you have not.He illustrates his process with anecdotes mini case studies from familiar big name companies such as Apple, Maytag Zappos, as well as the Detroit Public School District and some other educational settings.His action steps at the end of most chapters are useful, otherwise it is easy to let the narrative [...]

    A colleague who I respect recommended this book saying it had significantly influenced his way of thinking I picked it up and wasn t disappointed There is tremendous insight into understanding the future and being able to proverbially move to where the pick will be by looking at hard and soft trends.In today s ever accelerating environment, one needs to constantly change to keep up let alone get ahead Flash Foresight shows how to thrive in this environment.

  9. Julie says:
    I listened to this as an audio book and kept wishing I had a highlighter handy There was enough interesting points that were pertinent to my accounting business that I found it beneficial particularly when he talked about dematerialization This as definitely impacted my firm in the past 4 years He also encouraged me to ask better questions regarding the future of the firm and how I would like to see technology change the way I do business

  10. Neil says:
    Burrus highlights some key frameworks for where technology is taking us in the future A lot of his examples are inspiring, and a lot of them are slightly obvious Nevertheless, Burrus has some very valuable points in this book and it is worth reading for anyone either in business or interested in technology.

    This book is guaranteed to change your thinking about the future It lays out the strategy and steps to see the future Fascinating And because I love learning this is one of my favorite quotes e simple physics of it when you share a physical resource with someone else, your own store depletes but when you share knowledge, it increases.

  16. Chris says:
    while this book for provide a good framework and background on how to make decisions based upon hard and soft decisions, I feel that the author seemed to come across as cocky at times Good predictions about the future of technology and how it will continue to impact our lives.

  17. Capa says:
    Not badThere is some useful information regarding what you need to be looking at and how to go about coming up with a prognosis for the future Some things are glossed over, though, and should be fleshed out in better detail, like how to identify hard trends.

  18. Warren says:
    Typical business book The substance could be summed up in a few sentences but then the authors go on and on with their examples with so called clients like Billy Bob whom they re always having lunch with If you want a serious read on foresight there are better books around.

  19. Brent Mair says:
    I made it to page 97 and I think the book will be valuable to me but I ve lost interest at this time.
