3 Make your roadmap

As you have a vision based on the hypotheses validated by your stakeholders, you need a roadmap to achieve the vision. With the fast changes taking place, you can not stay put and wait for them to happen. Instead you need to create your future proactively.

Backcasting is a method used in a strategy planning process. It starts with defining the vision (i.e. desirable future) and continues by going a step back from it at a time. What needs to be done a year before we can reach our desired stage? And a year before that? We will help you identify the steps that will eventually connect the future vision to the present.

The methodology utilizes years’ of work with several large companies in Finland and internationally as well as future scenarios methods developed by Demos Helsinki, as a result of national and Europe-wide research.

Demos uses foresight knowledge and the latest information on the impact of megatrends on individuals to help steer their clients toward the desired future state. This we do by finding the most important enablers to make the vision reachable.
