  • Mapping outcomes of four Queensland city futures initiatives
    • First page: 561
      Abstract: Foresight, Volume 18, Issue 6, November 2016.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to map outcomes of four influential South East Queensland city visioning and foresight initiatives conducted by the cities of Maroochy, Logan, Gold Coast and Brisbane. Design/methodology/approach This article applies Causal Layered Analysis (CLA) to map the outcomes of four city visioning and foresight initiatives . Findings It is averred in this article that cities need to map their experiences of past futures initiatives for what worked and what has resulted today, and for recommendations of futures actions and innovations. Originality/value This article deepens discussion about the critical features of the four initiatives by focusing on their outcomes and alternatives they could produce to influence the futures of their cities.

  • Scenario based forecasting on commercial potential of SDHWS
    • First page: 586
      Abstract: Foresight, Volume 18, Issue 6, November 2016.
      Purpose The purpose of this study is to show how scenario based forecasting can give a better understanding of future commercial potential of a newly developed technology. This study aims to bridge the existing gaps in technology commercialization process for various projects supported under innovation support schemes in India. Design/methodology/approach The scope of this study is to understand the commercial potential and future deployment prospect of “Sun Direct Hot Water System (SDHWS)”. Scenarios have been drawn using “Cone of Plausibility” method and the commercial potential forecasted under different scenarios using arithmetic and linear regression forecasting tool. Findings The SDHWS is an incremental innovation, but has great potential to overcome major constraints and barriers associated with existing solar water Heater (SWH) technologies. Among the three scenarios drawn, plausible scenario is most likely to happen in future. The SDHWS is technically and economically capable of replacing existing conventional systems of SWHs. Research limitations/implications The study is limited to developing alternate qualitative scenarios, and further, an attempt to quantify the commercial potential. Various assumptions have been taken because of non-availability of past data on SDHWS technology. Originality/value Scenario based forecasting to understand commercial potential for innovative technology is a new approach. The adoption of such insight and analysis would brighten the chance of SDHWS technology to reach the market.

  • The validity of the classical Delphi applications for assessing the
           industrial sustainability-correction factor: an example study
    • First page: 603
      Abstract: Foresight, Volume 18, Issue 6, November 2016.
      Purpose The study builds up knowledge for collateral exploration of the classical Delphi survey method for assessing the industrial sustainability-related correction factor using a real field study in Nigeria. Design/methodology/approach The paper elicits the character and the operational approaches using an example study to provide a critical review of the method. It estimates the correction factor for appraisal purposes by transforming expert opinion into a valid group consensus. Findings The work considers the specific parameters of the method, design, and analysis for interpretation to prove the reliability and the validity for the research results. Moreover, it emphasises that the validity of the traditional Delphi research demands cautious theoretical and practical applications by the coordinating researcher. The paper establishes the current validity and effectiveness of the classical Delphi method of foresight and streamlines their efficient implementation for theory building despite its numerous weaknesses. Originality/value It explores desirable futures for the method while analysing what is possible and probable.

  • Designing Competitivity Activity Model through the strategic agility
           approach in a turbulent environment
    • First page: 625
      Abstract: Foresight, Volume 18, Issue 6, November 2016.
      Purpose This paper aims to introduce and test a model of shaping strategic agility based on dynamic capabilities such as IT competencies, entrepreneurial alertness and acuity market to improve firms’ competitive activity. Design/methodology/approach A study based on a quantitative approach has been designed. Data have been collected through closed questionnaires from a sample of firms. The study has been conducted in the electronics industry in Italy, based on the dynamism of the setting. Through SPSS-AMOS application, path analysis has been performed to conduct a first assessment of the theoretical model. Findings The dimensions of strategic agility are relevant capabilities for improving competitive activity. Furthermore, increasing strategic agility in the three dimensions (customer, operational and partnering) depends on the ability to improve other dynamic capabilities of the organization, including IT competency, systematic insight and strategic foresight. Finally, strategic agility results to be the only variable able to leverage the firm’s competitive activity. Research limitations/implications The study presents some limitations linked to the response rate and the ability to conduct further analysis. However, it highlights the main dimensions that managers and entrepreneurs should develop to improve the competitive activities of the firm. Practical implications The paper allows at address practitioners' need to identify the main variable to leverage to increase firms' competitivity. Originality/value This is the first study that investigates strategic agility building in a turbulent environment in the Italian setting.

      Purpose Especially sectoral foresight activities often identify technological opportunities but leave the question open who will pursue them. Here, entrepreneurial activities have become increasingly important for the introduction and commercialization of new technological solutions. The same is true for Russia’s oil and gas industry, which requires a major technological upscaling to stay competitive. Promising start-ups though face often high barriers and fail to commercialize superior technological solutions. Design/methodology/approach This paper discusses the experiences of a Russian oilfield service start-up in commercializing a self-developed technology for increasing the productivity of oil wells. Findings The start-up faced conservatism from corporate decision makers, declining oil prices and suboptimal protection of intellectual property rights. The company overcame most barriers through moving into other markets outside of Russia, as closing a deal with customers in the USA and Canada went much faster than the extended business cycles of national oil companies. Originality/value This paper connects sectoral foresight activities to the real-life experience of a start-up. The findings suggest that entry barriers need to be included in the planning process to really pave the way for a greater impact.
