This is a brief presention outlining the basics of Futurespectives, a way of influencing your teams future. Invented this technique while attending the Retrospective Facilitators Gathering 2005 where I heard Jean Tabaka talk about the excercise Giving an A. The following day we were messing around with facilitation techniques and it occurred to me to combine this idea with a timeline exercise, but one that was based on future events.

I need to write more about this technique, as I find that many people have misunderstood it, and not realised the importance of that “Giving an A” mindset.
