2nd December 2018, Faculty of Technology Management and Business, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia
On the 2nd of December 2018, the second leg of Universiti Tun Hussein Onn’s (UTHM) ForesightClub final paper presentation took place at Faculty of Technology Management and Business, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia. The program involved 23 pre-selected students from UTHM’s Faculty of Technology Management and Business.
A definitive follow up, initially, the first leg got the program off the ground with the introduction of a ‘Future Deck’ to assist and stimulate the students’ thinking on selected research topics for their final year project.
In brief, a ‘Future Deck’ is a compilation of megatrends with supporting keywords, facts and figures classified under five perspectives – social, technology, economic, environment, politics and values.
Leveraging on the countless hours of conducting training and consulting myForesight® has borne out, the collaboration mapped out a simple framework to measure these megatrends to help the students develop their research findings.
All of this is done with the aim to encourage young Malaysian entrepreneurs to pursue opportunities in various emerging technology fields. Contributing time and experience to the cause were myForesight’s senior research analysts, Nadia Sullivan and Mohd Hasan Mohd Saaid, who formed a panel of moderators in judging the students’ ideas.
Last but not least, the outreach program is another joint-effort by MIGHT and a local university partner to provide an outlook on all-round foresight tools and applications to stretch the nation’s foresight ambition holistically
