Futures Methods for Public Health Leaders
This course teaches how public health leaders can use futures methods. The methods include tapping into the aspiring mind of people working in public health to project a vision and to look more objectively at trends and scenarios that help assess likely changes affecting the future of public health. The methods include both looking to alternative futures and then taking the perspective of looking back toward the present from the vantage point of future scenarios to identify goals and milestones. The futures methods complement and enrich strategic plans which use current assumptions and shorter term projections. Learn More
