Abstract

Foresight and innovation are often regarded as distinct ‘knowledge areas’ or ‘disciplines’; however, we could probably see them as the two sides of the same coin: the former (Foresight) as a transversal methodology; and the latter (Innovation) as the cultural dimension underpinning strategic thinking and management. At a historical moment when the problems that need to be solved are multifaceted and accordingly require transversal approaches for their understanding and resolution, it seems to us that any efforts to locate approaches of a multidisciplinary and flexible nature within the rigid watertight parameters of traditional disciplines and knowledge areas will prove fruitless. We need to search somewhere else.
