“What Will We Live on in the Future?”
This question has been driving Pero Mićić for almost 25 years. He is not after vague predictions and scenarios, not after generic mega trends and definitely not after naïve extrapolation of micro trends. His core issue is: What will an actual company and its specific combined skill set live on in the future? What will an individual employee live on, whose market is about to change drastically? What will drive prosperity?
There are many futurists, trend researchers and lateral thinkers. To Pero Mićić, the future manager, their ideas and scenarios are just raw material. Future knowledge needs to be applied to real life challenges and thus made effective. Only then we will benefit.
As a student, Pero Mićić was fascinated by what entrepreneurs can do for customers, employees, and society. When he first read about strategic foresight and early warning systems, an idea was born he’d never let go: While you cannot predict the future, you can see, understand, and benefit more from the future than others! But future research seemed too far removed from the realities of the business world. That is why Pero Mićić became a pioneer of future management, building bridges from the theory of future research to the practice of business management and leadership.
In 1991 he founded the first private company for future management in the German-speaking world, today called FutureManagementGroup AG. Since that time, Pero Micic and his team have successfully completed hundreds of projects with the world’s leading and innovative companies, but also with public organizations such as the Bundeskriminalamt (German Federal Police). New products, new businesses and industries, new solutions and sustainable strategies — these are the answers to the pivotal question: “What will we live on in the future?”
