How do you apply the future?
A cone of possibility to transform
We have based our approach on Hermann Minkowski’s ideas. He was a German mathematician and Albert Einstein’s teacher and showed that Einstein’s theory of special relativity could best be understood as a theory of four-dimensional space-time. This understanding is known as Minkowski spacetime. Minkowski illustrated that there is only a cone of possible positions a particle can take in the future (it can not move faster than light and cannot go back in time). We use this idea in our work with organizations to identify that possibilities in the future are determined by their past and present. There’s only a cone of possibility that you can transform into. Our Agency can help you design this space of possibilities for the future for your organization.
Building the capacity for change
We also named ourselves after Minkowksi because he was a teacher. Nobody knows Minkowski and everyone knows Einstein. That is what we hope to accomplish as well. We enable others to step into the limelight and make history by changing the future. Or in other words, We give agency to people in organizations by designing co-creative interventions around the most important questions for their future. In highly customized sessions we work with challenging future thinkers and scientists, well-trained facilitators, experienced business coaches and innovators and people from your organization to empower you to lead the change as opposed to succumb to it. If you want to build the capacity to design your future, Minkowski can help you. GET IN TOUCH
Want to learn how to do it yourself?
If you want to learn more about ‘applied futures thinking’ and want to learn how to apply this way of thinking in your work, you should check out the curriculum of the Academy. We have developed many modules that help facilitators to facilitate with this mindset. But the modules are also useful for individuals in organizations that are transforming or for employees that want to be better equipped for the changing future they face each day. GET IN TOUCH
