The TechCast Project

Introducing the 2nd Generation of TechCast


       The TechCast Project has led the field of strategic forecasting for 20 years with a succession of improved websites, from TechCast 1.0 to the most recent TechCast 7.0, which has been converted into TechCast Local.

       Now we are pleased to introduce the TechCast 10.0 series as a different type of website that covers all aspects of strategic foresight. As explained in the About pages, we no longer provide subscriptions to detailed forecasts because they are now widely available. The TechCast Project is returning to its academic roots to focus on research studies, teaching and consulting.

        We now provide Forecast & Strategy Reports covering all strategic trends driving today’s rapidly changing world, and we also conduct cutting-edge research for planners, leaders and researchers. Our weekly newsletter on all this incisive work is so useful you’ll want to save these penetrating analyses. And our international panel of thought leaders discusses all this online, helps foster new projects and is available to assist others with their strategic needs.
