We are always creating tomorrow today. If organisations want to create their preferred futures under the NDIS it is essential that they critically question whether they are creating the tomorrow they want. NDS invites you to participate in this two-day workshop, Strategic Foresight for your NDIS Transition and Beyond, to build foresight capacity and futures-flexibility to transform your organisation for successful operation under the NDIS.

What new strategies can disability service organisations develop to be truly visible to clients and communities? How can they develop a more sustainable future? What strategies will the disability sector use to ride coming tsunamis of technological, social and environmental change (automisation futures, robots and AI, 3D printers, electric vehicles and virtual reality, etc.)?

In this interactive two-day futures workshop organisational leaders will:

  • Learn how to use the tools and methods of strategic foresight;
  • Consider how major waves of change are influencing the landscape in which disability services providers will be operating;
  • Understand how key major disruptors will impact upon service provision into the future;
  • Develop new directions for their organisations;
  • Create alternative or preferred scenarios for the futures of their organisations; and
  • Undertake visioning and next steps toward the realisation of organisational transformation.

Who should attend this workshop?

CEOs, CFOs, other executives and senior managers of disability and community organisations whose current services are transitioning or will be transitioned to the NDIS.
