“To assume that running a Foresight or Future program is something
that people can do on the side of their regular work would doom the
whole thing directly to failure.” In this episode, we are joined by
Dolby Laboratories' first-ever Foresight Strategist, and current
founder of her own consultancy, Tessa Finlev. As Head of Foresight,
she has launched an internal Futures Council, a company-wide
resource that scans the horizon and connects the dots back to
Dolby. In addition to a brief explanation of how Tessa
"accidentally" became a futurist, and a short dive into the
foresight activities at Dolby Laboratories, we address the core
question of how to run a Futures Council. If you want to learn more
about the characteristics, responsibilities, and goals of such a
council, but also how time travelers come into play in that
context, you shouldn’t miss this episode. The episode at a glance:
