Manufacturing Council Forum – Threatcasting: Preparing for an Uncertain Future
June 3 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EDT
Are you prepared for the future? What has 2020 taught you? How has your organization changed to prepare for 2022 and beyond? World-renowned Futurist and best-selling author Brian David Johnson will explore the methodology of Threatcasting.
Organizations, global corporations, and the United States military have used it to identify and explore a broad range of possible and potential threat futures. Johnson works with these organizations to not only identify these threats but also how organizations can identify, disrupt, mitigate, and recover from them. In his talk he will give an overview of Threatcasting and answer your questions.
Brian David Johnson’s work is called futurecasting, using ethnographic field studies, technology research, cultural history, trend data, global interviews and even science fiction to provide a pragmatic road map of the future.
He has contributed articles to publications like The Wall Street Journal, Slate, and Wired Magazine.
Johnson holds over 40 patents, and is the best-selling author of both science fiction and fact books (The Future You, WaR: Wizards and Robots, 21st Century Robot and Science Fiction Prototyping). He was appointed first futurist ever at the Intel Corporation in 2009 where he worked for over a decade helping to design over 2 billion microprocessors.
Johnson appears regularly on the BBC, Bloomberg TV, PBS, FOX News, and the Discovery Channel and has been featured in Scientific American, The Technology Review, Forbes, INC, and Popular Science. He has directed two feature films and is an illustrator and commissioned painter. In 2016 Samuel Goldwyn released “Vintage Tomorrows” a documentary based upon Johnson’s book of the same name.
