Technology horizons Program
The Technology Horizons Program combines a deep understanding of technology and societalforces to identify and evaluate discontinuities and innovations in the next three to ten years.We help organizations develop insights and strategic tools to better position themselves for thefuture. Our approach to technology forecasting is unique—we put humans in the middle of ourforecasts. Understanding humans as consumers, workers, householders, and community mem-bers allows IFTF to help companies look beyond technical feasibility to identify the value in newtechnologies, forecast adoption and diffusion patterns, and discover new market opportunitiesand threats.
