Abstract

The key problem addressed in this paper relates to the organisation of foresight in a way that takes into account the interdependent, complex and multi-faceted operational environment of innovation systems. Our research question is how to view foresight in a way that facilitates better use of its outcomes, allows for broad participation and enhances the impacts of foresight. In order to answer this question, we propose a service model for foresight based on a systems view. The model is based on a project done for the Finnish Prime Minister's Office and consists of different ways to view foresight encapsulated in six metaphors and a conceptual process model aiming to support the design and positioning of foresight activities.
