    Managerial foresight: concept and measurement2008In: Foresight, ISSN 1463-6689, E-ISSN 1465-9832, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 53-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to establish what foresight is, to review past usages and

    definitions of foresight and to synthesize them into one generic definition, in order to make the concept

    measurable.

    Design/methodology/approach – A discussion on how to classify variables in the social sciences

    serves as the starting-point. Next, a review of past definitions and usages of the concept foresight is

    followed by further analysis and then synthesizing of the generic definition. The generic definition is

    finally compared and contrasted with the related concepts of forecasting, strategic analysis, and

    intuition.

    Findings – Foresight is defined as behavior along three dimensions: degree of analyzing present

    contingencies and degree of moving the analysis of present contingencies across time; degree of

    analyzing a desired future state or states a degree ahead in time with regard to contingencies under

    control; and degree of analyzing courses of action a degree ahead in time to arrive at the desired future

    state.

    Research limitations/implications – The article makes foresight quantitatively measurable, which in

    turn makes it possible to empirically measure the existence of foresight among managers and to test the

    relationship between foresight and organizational performance.

    Practical implications – Practical foresight tools and programs, etc. can now be assessed and

    compared by both practitioners and researchers.

    Originality/value – In identifying three fundamental behavioral dimensions of foresight, the article

    conceives and advances foresight as a distinct concept that can be related to several research areas,

    both on individual (e.g. managerial) and organizational levels.

    Managerial foresight: measurement scale and estimation2011In: Foresight, ISSN 1463-6689, E-ISSN 1465-9832, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 58-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to develop and assess an instrument measuring managerial foresight.

    Design/methodology/approach – The paper outlines the construction and estimation of the instrumentthrough a seven-step process. A total of 57 preliminary Likert items were developed based on an extantreview and synthesis of definitions of foresight. The items were assessed through interviews andpre-testing. A preliminary instrument was administered to a selection of managers. Exploratory andconfirmatory factor analyses were employed to assess sub-scales and model fit. The instrument wasevaluated in terms of reliability and validity.

    Findings – The study demonstrates a valid and reliable 12 Likert item scale for measuring managerialforesight.Research limitations/implications – Managerial foresight can now be assessed and tested forassociation with, for example, managerial or organizational performance variables.

    Practical implications – Managers can now be assessed and compared in terms of foresight.Originality/value – In developing and estimating an instrument for measuring managerial foresight, thepaper advances foresight into a quantitatively measurable concept.

    Managers' foresight matters2011In: Foresight, ISSN 1463-6689, E-ISSN 1465-9832, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 64-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – To assess the relationship between the foresight of managers and firm performance.

    Design/methodology/approach – An evolutionary perspective is deployed to specify thepresumed relationship between managerial foresight and firm performance measures. Apositive relationship between managerial foresight and firm performance is proposed. Thehypothesis is tested through Spearman’s rho, on Swedish managers, and firms in the computerprogramming industry. Managers’ foresight as well as performance is assessed as indexes.

    Findings – A moderate and statistically significant positive relationship between managers’foresight and firm performance.

    Theoretical implications – There is support for the theoretical relationship betweenmanagerial foresight and firm performance. There is a strong rationale for further studies.

    Originality/value – The paper provides empirical evidence regarding the importance ofmanagerial foresight for firm performance.
