We offer a constantly updated database of over 180 Trends, structured by the STEEP framework. Backed up by more than 170 Indicators with over 3000 datasets and a powerful Media Analysis tool to monitor country- or topic-specific developments in real-time.

Foresight Dashboard Case Study

Foresight Dashboard

Starting point

Foresight outputs such as scenarios often lack stakeholder engagement and a missing connection to data insights, which hamper their embedding in strategic decision making. On the other side, the often static and time-delayed nature of foresight reports makes it difficult to understand complex, uncertain, ambiguous, and volatile developments as they unfold.

Result and Value

The dashboard provides dynamic and interactive visualisations of foresight results in real-time. With that, a higher stakeholder engagement can be achieved by making all important information available in one place.


Our approach

With the Foresight Strategy Cockpit interactive dashboards can be created and embedded on an external website to explore foresight results more interactively and visually engaging. As a starting point, 4strat’s own trend and signal database offers the first step to enrich existing knowledge about the future with deeper insights. Based on expert ratings, trends can be rated and instantly visualised on the radar or portfolio.

To track changes over time, a media monitoring is connected to each trend to watch its development in real-time based on articles and blogs, but also to find new signals that might be relevant in the future. The dashboard can be used for enhanced stakeholder engagement with future topics or as an alternative to trend reports. It can be expanded with additional features such as comments, scenarios, strategy maps etc. The dashboard is also highly customisable to align it with an organisation’s unique colours and logos.​
