Abstract [en]

Networked foresight is an established means to achieve an understanding of trends, changes, disruptives, and ideas with high innovation potential. When managed successfully, it allows for the elicitation of knowledge from competent professionals, with complementary resources, assets, and capabilities, providing benefit both to partners and to the network as a whole. The Innovation Radar business catalyst of EIT ICT Labs (a virtual organisation of multi-nationals, research institutes, and academic institutions) has used speedwriting as an integral part of its structured brainstorming, with the aim of efficiently producing networked foresight with adequate depth and width. Speedwriting aids width in particular, as it prompts the inclusion of disruptives and speculative developments. Eight Innovation Radar workshops involving more than 100 experts in total have employed the speedwriting element to maximise value for the organisation. Since speedwriting is a largely undocumented method, its merits to strategic and corporate foresight are here scrutinised in detail.
