Anticipatory thinking (Thought leadership)

skills and abilities are cultivated by [interdisciplinary] peer mentoring protocols. As enablers of [social capital] investing methods, they focus on change as normal event!

Adapted from Modern Social Change Theories



by Nicholas G. Hueser, M.S. March 27, 1998

:collaborating with [Minnesota Futurists] Chapter of the [World Future Society] (WFS).


This paper has these sections:

:1 An overview of the group dynamics theories of [structural functionalism]

of [Talcott Parsons] ([1951]) and how they can be used in the study of social change.


:2 Theories of [technology transfer], including [modernization theory]

and how it has evolved into a theory of [sustainable development].


:3 Theories of [futures studies] [forecasting] that have evolved

into a new field of study called [anticipatory science].


:4 A summary section discussing common themes

and future directions needed to achieve [social change]. 


Subsequent studies of [group dynamics] in [learning organization] include:



[Cargill], [General Mills], [Honeywell] and [Medtronic] are examples of [Minnesota]-based global businesses that integrate 'anticipatory thinking' with corporate social responsibility. This community [stewardship] culture helped Business Continuity Planning (BCP) evolve from the Thanksgiving Norwest Bank] fire in [Minneapolis] (1982).
