The Futures Toolkit provides a set of tools to help embed long-term strategic thinking within the policy process, and explains how to ensure they have real impact. It is intended for policy officials and analysts across government.
The toolkit summarises what futures thinking is, how it can be used in policy making and describes a series of tools that can be used by policy makers to manage in uncertainty and identify future actions. The tools vary in the expertise needed to use them, with tools for beginners through to tools for experts. Experts from government and industry have contributed to its development and have provided case studies to illustrate the tools.
