Weak-Signals Funnel Management

In an environment of intense techno-social disruption and “when change is rapidly gathering pace,” Technology Foresight teams generally have to contend with a potential “hunting ground” that spans the gamut of S&T and involves a constantly shifting ecosystem of actors across the globe. In such an environment, even the best-in-class process faces some unique challenges –

  • How does a company ensure it is accessing the true breadth of S&T signals globally before they are commonly known?
  • How can an organization efficiently distinguish relevant signal clusters from one-off blips – especially in new or unfamiliar S&T domains?
  • Does the organization’s process give it the tools to track a relevant early-stage technology / weak-signal cluster through the “tipping point” from “interesting” to “actionable”?
