Futures: The Unit of Delivery is Action

I remember this from the early days of GDS permeating its way across the UK digital culture and beyond; The Team is the Unit of Delivery. Getting a group of good people well working together towards well considered outcomes.

In the last week or so, after a conversation with Samantha Culp, who’s writing a book about the global landscapes of futures thinking, I realised there’s something in this line of thought on my default mode when it comes to Futures work.

The unit of delivery for Futures is action.

What is somebody, anybody, going to do about this that they weren’t going to do in the first place?
