Biography

Bob Johansen has been helping organizations around the world prepare for and shape the future for nearly forty years. As a distinguished fellow at IFTF, he draws on his training in the social sciences and his extensive experience at the edges of multiple disciplines as he interacts with top leaders of business, government, and nonprofit organizations to encourage thoughtful consideration of the long-term future. He was IFTF’s president from 1996 to 2004 and served on its board until 2010; before that he created and led the Technology Horizons Program.

The author or co-author of eight books, Mr. Johansen is a frequent keynote speaker for large groups and also leads small workshops for creative teams. His best-selling Get There Early: Sensing the Future to Compete in the Present was selected as one of the top business books of 2007 and was followed by the complementary Leaders Make the Future: Ten New Leadership Skills for an Uncertain Age, now in its second edition with contributions by the Center for Creative Leadership.

Bob Johansen was the first full-time social scientist hired at IFTF and evolved over the years into a forecaster focused on organizations, technology, and human values. Today he researches, writes about, and teaches the skills leaders must possess in order for their organizations to thrive, given the external future forces delineated in IFTF’s ten-year forecast. While trained in quantitative forecasting methodologies, he communicates his foresight through accessible language, meaningful stories, and immersion experiences. His writing, speaking, and teaching bring IFTF’s foresight-to-insight-to-action model to a broad and influential audience.

Impacts of technology: When he joined IFTF in 1973, Bob was one of the first social scientists to study the human and organizational impacts of the ARPANET, the prototype for the Internet. He created and led a research program on emerging information technologies—now called the Technology Horizons Program. He has a special interest in how information technologies can facilitate networking, minimize distances, and take advantage of differences.
