What is corporate foresight?

Arup Foresight helps organisations understand trends, explore new ideas, and radically rethink the future of their businesses. We examine the many forces shaping the future of the built environment. We developed the concept of ‘foresight by design’, which uses innovative design tools and techniques in order to bring new ideas to life, and to engage all stakeholders in meaningful conversations about change.

We are a multidisciplinary team of designers, researchers, scientists and consultants. Our specialist knowledge in foresight is complemented by Arup’s global network of engineers and consultants. This allows us to combine design thinking and corporate foresight with specialist expertise across the built environment.

Building business resilience

Our foresight specialists have worked will clients across a broad range of sectors to help understand change and build resilience for the future. We have provided foresight advisory services to clients, including higher education facilities, science and industry, transport, healthcare and utilities sector.
