This unit introduces students to a range of analytical tools and skills to understand, unpack, evaluate and influence the future of business. A range of megatrends, issues, crisis and concerns (such as digitisation and technology, resource scarcity, demographic change and smart cities) confronting both the public and private sectors are examined and the ways in which they can be addressed are explored. The unit of study has two main purposes: (1) to build problem-solving skills which allow students to think creatively about the future needs of stakeholders and (2) develop students' ability to work efficiently in a team environment. The unit provides a variety of learning experiences through which students get to practice these skills in digital space and reflect on their experiences.
