The Future Quotient

December 28, 2011

At a happy hour in Hub Westminster, I met with someone working for Volans who is developing an interesting concept: the Future Quotient. It measures the long-term thinking and acting capability of individuals and companies, or as they define it: “the FQ is a measure of the future readiness – of individuals, teams, agencies, businesses, brands, and beyond- to positively cope with and overcome the various complexities as a result of foreseeable and unforeseeable future changes in the economy, society and the environment”
I found the tool quite interesting. After all, it is a valuable measure to get, and could be as useful as the measure of thinking abilities (IQ) and or emotional control (EQ). The question now is whether organisations and individuals will quickly adopt it or  will it stay a semi-marketing and funny tool to gain some slots in business conferences?…oh and you can take the FQ test here
