What Makes Us Unique?

There are lots of organizations doing semantic and big data analysis, taxonomies, natural language processing that we use here and lots of people creating futures-oriented, horizon scanning content and strategic foresight platforms but only Shaping Tomorrow does both in real-time and at ~10% of the cost of traditional consultancies. We work to achieve lean compliant and zero defect processes.

Shaping Tomorrow is close to being the equivalent of the front desk research librarian for foresight materials but is also rapidly becoming a cyborg (human/AI) blended service. Our cognitive computing system includes data mining, natural language processing, pattern recognition and increasing machine self-learning to identify weak signals, emerging trends, uncertainties and potential surprises. That leaves you with more effective and efficient data interpretation, idea development, and the application of context and history to the decision-making process.

Shaping Tomorrow is the expert and digital pioneer in helping organizations and individuals make better decisions today through our broad experience in practical, structured analytic techniques. We help put the future right at your fingertips, avoid failures of strategy formulation and to successfully anticipate and prepare for emerging change. We help move you and your organization towards predictive, scenario, and prognosis-based decision-making.

From day one we have worked with members and clients to develop an omniscient, erudite, systematic and real-time strategic foresight, trends research, sentiment analysis, competitive and market intelligence system that's human-centric. It is designed to help organizations be agile, innovative and resilient in the face of rapidly increasing uncertainty and surprise and to work for the good of all publics'.
