Consultations

Hawaii Futures conducts research and training for businesses, organizations, and agencies that wish to cultivate and integrate foresight and long-term thinking. We offer a range of services including topical lectures, strategic research, methods and visioning workshops, short courses, and on-demand futures consulting and support.

Through research and consultation, Hawaii Futures empowers individuals, communities, governments, and businesses to:

  • Elucidate and evaluate possible and preferred futures;
  • Develop strategic plans to enable preferred futures;
  • Facilitate preferred futures not only for themselves, but for everyone they touch.

Though services are need-specific, most commonly Hawaii Futures offers private or public presentations, workshops, or seminars on a wide variety of aspects of futures research. These futures activities identify emerging issues and innovations, help people think through the implications of change for themselves and their organizations, and facilitate visioning processes for long-range planning and action.
