… by looking ahead further than the conventional norms would enable us to assist the government to strike the right balance between long-term thinking & tackling issues that need immediate attention

Greetings & Salutations, It is my pleasure to bring you the latest edition of myForesight® magazine, it is a special one because this particular edition is a bumper issue in conjunction with MIGHT’s 20th Anniversary.
Therefore, for this particular edition, we are dedicating a major part of the magazine to the focus areas of MIGHT as well as insights from both our joint chairs and CEO. We’ve also reproducing experts’ insights from our collaborators and leave enough room for trends and issues that is worth discussing.
20 years is a long time. Looking back, I join MIGHT in 2007 and duly learned on what the organization is all about and how they go about things. And I’ve found out that although the personnel have change and the methodology has evolved, the way MIGHT does things remain the largely intact; consensus building through partnership & networking, providing strategic input to policy making and planning. If you refer to the diagram attached, it is very much in line with how MIGHT does things.
Therefore MIGHT has been undertaking foresight since inception, continuously undertaking it and building it to what it is now. The reasoning is by looking ahead further than the conventional norms would enable MIGHT to assist the Government to strike the right balance between long-term thinking & tackling issues that need immediate attention.
I have mentioned in this space how in doing foresight and looking at the future there is a need to also learn from the past and you predecessors. Therefore I am also taking this space to acknowledge those who undertook and contributed to the process as well as those who were responsible to build the required competencies and understanding of foresight.
As usual, we hope you find the magazine beneficial and thought provoking.
We expect you to have your opinion on certain matters. We want to hear them if you are willing to share. We welcome your feedback and contributions.
