Survey Results: Our Future After Corona

SurveyCOVID-19 forces us all to a new way of living and working. Working and learning from home, online shopping, more leisure time and stress at the same time are only a few of the phenomena we all experience on ourselves. What exactly has changed and what will change permanently, and what chances will there be after Corona?

In order to get a feeling for the current situation and an assessment of possible scenarios, I invited my newsletter subscribers to a non-representative survey. The more than 50 responses from the German-speaking countries (and some English-speaking ones) were included in this survey. The majority of my subscribers come from a more technically affine environment and are therefore not representative for the general population. The survey is meant to be a mood survey.

Thank you everyone who participated. Now here is more about the survey results.

Men in Cowboy Hats Practice Poi

Cowboy Poi Unexpectedly, the Corona lockdown gave me time to pursue some of my crazy hobbies. One of them is called Poi. Here I practice a few easy tricks in front of a picturesque background under the Californian sun with regional headgear and retro swing background sound. Have fun watching the video!

New E-Book: Corona As A Chance!

Corona als ChanceWhoever told me three months ago that I was going to write a book whose cover would be decorated with a toilet paper roll, I would have just laughed at him. Well, here's my latest book (in German) with a toilet roll on the cover. And it has to do with Corona and our future. Guess who they are laughing about now?

The question of how things will continue after Corona is of great concern to many people. The world is somehow upside down and in addition there are worldwide protests, and this in the middle of a pandemic. How will you continue with your own job? What does the future of my company look like after such a disruption? What technologies should I focus on? And what about aid packages and unconditional basic income?

In order to provide assistance and to better navigate this crisis and the time after it, I have written an analysis in the form of an e-book on possible trends and scenarios in which I discuss the effects of the crisis on technology trends, industries, politics and society.

The table of contents of the 120-page book can be viewed here on page 1 and page 2. You can order it directly from the publisher.

Foresight Mindset Workshops

„The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
- Eleanor Roosevelt

If you want to provoke insights about the future, and come to your own conclusion by applying the same methodologies that I used for my latest e-book on Corona As A Chance, then you may want to consider a Foresight Mindset workshop with me. Such a team-workshop includes the following topics, including many tasks in small groups:

  1. Five phases of the Foresight Mindset CycleWorkshop
  2. What is Foresight?
    • Forecast versus Prediction
    • What are Signals and Trends?
    • What are Cassandras?
  3. Introduction to the methods
    • Future Benchmarking
    • Futures Wheel
    • Scenario Planing
    • Backcasting
    • Messages from the Future
    • Storytelling
    • Trend Recognition
    • ...
  4. Foresight Mindset as strategic discipline
  5. Where does Foresight fail and how can we avoid that?
  6. Ethical questions about Foresight Mindset
The aim of the workshop is not only to have understood the foresight methods, but also to have scenarios and a feeling of a better overview of the future and the necessary steps and procedures. If you are interested in further workshops with 10-30 participants, then let's talk about it. Just send me an email.
