Together with four partners around Europe we have developed a unique programme for future strategists. The partners all work for strengthening Europe’s industry and society and work in the fields of future studies, scenarios, visions, strategy, communication, and organisational development. The partners have long track record in working with private enterprises and public organisations, on local, regional and national levels. The four partners are:
Kairos Future, ShiftN, Shared Intelligence, Capful.

The ICFS program was developed with support from EU’s Leonardo da Vinci Program for lifelong learning. It is based on Kairos Future’s futures program that has been running since 2001 but developed and refined for an international audience, with international course tutors. The ICFS program has been running since 2014, with participants from all over Europe, from the Americas and Asia.

The International Certified Future Strategist (ICFS) runs from January to May, with five course modules of each one to two days. In-between the course modules, participants spend time on home assignments, required for certification. Certification is included in the course program. The ICFS programme has also been accredited by the UK Chartered Management Institute as meeting the learning objectives of CMI’s Level 7 Award in Strategic Management and Leadership. Qualification according to this is a possible addition and not included in the course.

The programme fee for the ICFS course is €7,000 (all prices are excluding VAT). This is inclusive of lunches and course materials, but exclusive of travel and related costs.
